  • ¾ cup diced butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp cloves

Raspberry glaze:

  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Mix well the butter, honey, and brown sugar with a whisk. Add the egg and keep whisking. Separately, mix the flour, the baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves; and then sift.

Mix all the ingredients making an easy-to-work-with dough. If it is too dry, add some water and if it is too moist, add some more flour. Once ready, refrigerate for about ten minutes, ideally.

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, to a 1/8 of an inch thickness and cut in star shapes. You must have different sizes to put the trees together, with 2 stars per each size. Once cut, bake for 15 minutes until they are slightly golden and allow to cool.

For the glaze, first, blend and strain the raspberries. Then we mix this raspberry concentrate with the sugar and the egg white until getting a creamy texture. Cover all the cookies with the raspberry glaze.

To put the tree together, put the largest cookie as a base, then glaze in the center, then another cookie of the same size, and repeat with all the cookies from larger to smaller. Ideally, have 5 molds of different sizes so the tree has 10 cookies.
