Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. To make cookies, in a bowl, mix together flour, walnuts, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a second bowl, beat together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Slowly blend in the flour nut-mixture.
  3. Using your hands, form small, round dough balls and place them on ungreased baking sheets. Gently press down in the balls to slightly flatten each cookie.
  4. To make the glaze, heat the honey, butter, vanilla, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a large saucepan over low heat until syrupy. Set aside until ready to use.
  5. Bake the cookies for 10 minute or until golden. Remove from the oven and drizzle the glaze over the cookies. Let stand on the sheets until cooled completely.
