As the name goes, this is a cookie soaked in Honey-orange syrup making it oozy inside with a cakey texture. Though it looks like any other cookie, one bite n u definitely know there’s much more to it.

I have used powdered almonds to top up the cookies which could be replaced with walnuts as well. Also the sugar quantity could be reduced further based on personal choices as the end product will be quite sweet as honey n orange syrup gets infused inside the cookie cake. Further, do not omit lemon from the syrup as this is what gives much needed tanginess to the cookie cake.

Finally enjoy the soft cookie cake n handle delicately as this can crumble easily due to the syrupy nature.
