110g softened butter
250 g creamed honey
1 free-range egg
200 g all-purpose white or spelled flour
50g ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of sea salt
150g goat cheese
5cm x 5cm piece of honeycomb
Preheat the oven to 170°C in convection. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and honey until pale, light and fluffy. Add egg and mix until well blended.
Gradually add the flour, ground almonds, baking powder and salt. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overdo it.
Place walnut-sized mounds of cookie dough on the lined baking sheet. Press down on each one to flatten them slightly. Break goat cheese into almond-sized pieces and press 3 pieces into each cookie. Finally, press a small, coin-sized piece of honeycomb into the center of each cookie.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
Let the cookies rest for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
