Cookies without an oven

Marie en Rougie Koekjes 3A delicious and easy recipe from my family on Flakkee appears to be well suited to Africa, where most people have no oven.

2 cups (500g) flour
1 cup (250g) caster sugar
1 bag vanilla sugar
a pinch of salt
1 cup (250g) butter
1 egg
1.5 tbsp syrup (special shipment from Holland) or local honey (with small bits of bee!)
2 teaspoons cinnamon

You can also take half of everything (editors note: or twice as much). Roll dough out, cut in shapes, and bake in a dry frying pan for a few minutes. It’s a bit of work, but a fun holiday activity for Maria and her friends.
