Recipe: Manna Cookies

Manna Cookies, Easter cookies-Rae

I first made these Easter cookies last year.  They were a big hit at school.  I felt I should post again because it was so popular before.

This recipe is great for bible class or religion, or just for families and individuals that are looking for a way to celebrate Easter from a Catholic point of view.

What is Manna?  “When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, ‘What is it?’ For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, ‘It is the bread that the LORD has given you to eat’” (Exodus 16:15). The Hebrew word translated “manna” literally means “what is it?”

MANNA COOKIES

1/2 cup softened butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 eggs

2 cups flour

dash salt

1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander, optional, I did not use, honestly I could not find the ground coriander in my store.

Cream butter, adding sugar gradually, until light and pale.  Add eggs and beat thoroughly.  Add honey, salt and vanilla.  Combine baking powder and flour, add to butter mixture.  Drop by 1/2 teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet (or silpat) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 minutes or until done.  Cool on wire racks.

Enjoy!!!
