  1. 220g all-purpose flour
  2. 2 tbsp cornstarch
  3. 1 tsp baking soda
  4. pinch of salt
  5. 100g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  6. 100g brown sugar
  7. 1 egg
  8. 40g honey
  9. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  10. 3 tsp gingerbread spice
  11. 2 tsp cinnamon
  12. 15 soft caramels
  13. granulated sugar and cinnamon for rolling cookies
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set it aside.
  3. 3. In another bowl, beat butter and sugar together for about 3 minutes. Add the egg and mix well. To the mixture add honey, vanilla, gingerbread spice and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Fold in the flour mixture and beat it until everything is incorporated.Chill the dough for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  4. 4. Take about half a tablespoon of cookie dough at a time and shape a ball between your palms. Repeat this process to make a second ball. Place one caramel on the ball and place the second ball on top (please see photos below). Firmly press the two balls together and shape them to a bigger ball between your hands. Roll the ball in the sugar and cinnamon mixture and place on the baking tray. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  5. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes. Let them cool completely on the baking tray.
  1. The caramels will harden once the cookies are cooled. Pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them again.
  2. Store cookies in airtight containers with parchment paper between each layer, so that the cookies won't stick together.
