10 minute cookies: honey snaps

Fat Mum Slim /

Do you ever want a sweet fix immediately, if not sooner? These biscuits can be made from scratch in just 10 minutes – from the pot to your mouth in 10 minutes AND you only need 4 ingredients. AND they’re delicious. What more could you want?

So if someone calls and says they’re coming around for a cuppa tea… you can whip these up before they’ve even rung the doorbell. Easy.


1/4 cup {2 fl oz} honey
90g {3 oz} butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup plain {all-purpose} flour


♥ Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius {335 degrees Fahrenheit}.
♥ In a small saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter, honey and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. This shouldn’t take long at all – it took me about 3 minutes. Add the flour and mix until smooth.
♥ Drop tablespoons of mix onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
♥ Cook for 5 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 15 cookies.
