Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon honey, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1-1/4 cups sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg yolks, 1 tablespoon honey and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Shape a heaping tablespoonful of dough into a 6-in. log. In a shallow bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; roll log in cinnamon sugar. Loosely coil log into a spiral shape; place on a greased baking sheet. Repeat, placing cookies 1 in. apart. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.
