Duvshaniot - another hard word to learn in Hebrew! And all it means is Honey Cookies!! A Rosh Hashana Sweet Cookie! (לראש השנה)

Duvshaniot is the name for popular Israeli cookies that are made with honey which is traditionally baked during the celebration of Rosh Hashana.

However, there is no rule about when you make these. I have not stopped baking them all year since my family really likes them.

They are not too sweet and are a perfect cookie to have with a cup of coffee anytime.

The best thing about them is that they are so easy and quick to make, you don’t even need a mixer!

And they are dairy free and parve.

This is all you need!

1 cup Brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups plus 4 tablespoons all purpose (plain) flour

a pinch of salt

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup canola oil

For coating

A small bowl filled with powdered sugar (icing sugar)

In a bowl add sugar, honey, egg and oil and whisk together

Add all dry ingredients and mix until it is blended together.

Place in the refrigerator covered with saran wrap for a minimum of an hour.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F

Take out dough from refrigerator and form into balls by rolling a small amount in the palm of your hand or use a rounded ice cream scoop and place each one on a baking tin lined with parchment paper.

Take each ball and dip it into the bowl filled with powdered sugar and place it back in the tin.

When all cookies are covered with sugar bake them in the oven for about 12 minutes.

Don’t leave them in too long or they will harden.

When the bottom of the cookie is firm they’re done! Lift one to check.

Let them cool on an oven rack.

Enjoy these honey sweet cookies everyday with your favorite hot drink or glass of milk!
