Melangery Stamped Honey-Vanilla Cookies

One of the things my kids could always count on when they come from school, is finding homemade sugar cookies in the big blue cookie jar in my old kitchen hutch.

These cookies are very special, they have my blog signature. What would you write on your cookie?

Note: For these cookies you will need the Customizable Cookie Stamp to create your own messages.

Makes: about 15 cookies


  • 1/2 cup (8 Tbsp.) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vanilla sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. honey


Preheat an oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Add about half of the flour mixture, and and beat until blended. Add the vanilla sugar, egg yolk, honey and beat until smooth. Beat in the remaining flour. Chill the dough for about 15 minutes.

Shape the dough into 1-1 1/2 inch balls. Place them 2 inches apart on baking sheets. You will have 6-8 cookies per sheet. Using a floured cookie stamp or flatten balls to 1/4 inch thickness. Trim uneven edges with a round cookie cutter.

Bake the cookies until the edges are light brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks and let the cookies cool briefly on the sheets, then transfer the cookies to the racks and let cool completely.

Everything that you make looks so beautiful! I love the look of these cookies. Who wouldn't want to eat them? They are simple enough to enjoy over a morning cup of tea but elegant enough to offer to visitors. A really lovely share Yelena :)

Your Melangery stamped cookies look delightful. I'd be inclined to imprint mine with: Yes, please!

First of all, your blog is beautiful. And your photos are amazing. I made these cookies when you first published this recipe. My family and friends loved them. I keep your posts in my email for reference and I just had to find this recipe for a cookie exchange this weekend. As I had printed it the first time and we moved and I can't find my recipe binder. There's a reason why I keep your posts in my mailbox, and now I saved it to Pinterest. Thank you for your beautiful, classic style and your amazing recipes. You have a follower forever.
