Are you looking for a delightful recipe for your Christmas cookies? Here you will find something really special that will suprise your guests!



150 g brown sugar

500 g flour

150 g soft butter

120 g cocoa powder

250 ml fluid honey

2 small eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder

A pinch of salt

Orange peel and lemon


Mixed spices, like cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and clove

(If you do not like spices, you can omit them).


Knead the butter and sugar, add the eggs, salt and the spices  and half flour mixed with the baking powder. While stirring, add the honey, the cocoa powder and the remaining flour. The dough will be very soft, but do not add anymore flour, otherwise the cookies will be too crunchy. Put the dough in the fridge and let it rest for a few hours.

Roll out the dough on a work surface dusted with cocoa powder: it will have to be about half a centimeter thick. Use your favourite cookie cutters and once you have dozens of sweet, nice Christmas shapes, bake the cookies at 180 ° C for about 10-12 min, be careful not to overcook them!

Let the cookies cool down and decorate them to you taste!


Best wishes from all the Mezzacorona Team and do not forget to toast with our wines!
