Isn’t it funny
How a bear likes honey?
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
I wonder why he does?

I don’t know if I’ve ever said this before on my blog but I think Winnie the Pooh is so fucking funny and underrated. One of my favourite moments from the books is when Pooh accidentally eats Eeyore’s birthday present (honey) and gives him the empty jar instead, as a Useful Pot to Keep Things In, inscribed by Owl to read:

HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY

I feel like this Hundred Acre Wood biscuits would be a great gift in a pot inscribed with HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY which imo is peak comedy. And this is a really ridiculously simple recipe that takes less than five minutes to put together. Since I originally drafted out this post (it’s been sitting in my drafts for… uhhh.. at least five years) I’ve become a vegan so I would recommend using a vegan honey alternative like Hunee instead, and a banana or vegan egg yolk substitute like Vegg for the yolk. And whatever butter substitute you probably already have in your house..

Ingredients

  • 120g butter /vegan alternative
  • 120g sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey /vegan alternative
  • 1 egg yolk /vegan alternative
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 180g self-raising flour

Method

  1. Cream the ingredients together with a spoon
  2. Roll the mixture into small balls with your hands and put them on a lined baking tray
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 180 degrees – take them out before then if they get too brown!
  4. Wait for them to cool and then eat all of the biscuits

*I named the cookies ‘Hundred Acre Wood Honey Biscuits’ because I thought ‘Pooh biscuits’ wouldn’t sound as appetising, somehow.
