German Honey Cookies

These cookies keep almost forever in a sealed container. They become softer and chewier over a period of time. They are perfect for dunking in your tea or coffee.


  • 1 1/3 cups honey
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups ground walnuts
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup candied fruit or dried fruit chopped


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. Warm honey in saucepan, stir in sugar until melted. Let cool.
  3. Sift together flour and spices.
  4. Place honey mixture in mixing bowl and gradually add flour mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in fruits.
  5. Roll dough about 1/4-inch thick on a floured board, cut into squares and rectangles with a pastry wheel or sharp knife or drop cookie dough by teaspoonful.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and cool.

Makes about 4 dozen.
