Honeying the cookies is important. You cannot just pour warm honey on them. Some recipes on the internet say that approach will work, but it does not. If you do that, you get a sticky mess. There is a proper way to honey the cookies and I present it below. The process is the same for both the wine cookies and scalidi.
5 lbs of honey
3 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
Combine all of the ingredients in a large cooking pot on the stove and heat to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir to ensure nothing sticks and burns. This mixture needs to cook for about ten minutes or so. When the honey starts to boil, it is going to foam up and double in size. Use a nice deep pot or it will boil over. Once it foams and boils, turn the heat down and cook it until it becomes stringy when drizzled off of a spoon. This is what you are trying to achieve.
Once you have it cooked, turn down the heat and start adding the cookies in the honey in small batches. Let them soak in it for a few minutes (I usually let them simmer for five minutes per batch) turning the cookies from time to time.
Take them out and let them dry on a rack or wax paper turning them over to ensure even drying.
One batch of honey will be adequate for about two batches of cookies.
