Sancta Coena cookies by Lotus
This makes approximately 1 dozen, depending upon what cookie cutter you use.
1 cube (1/4 lb) butter
1.5 cups flour
1/2 cup raw sugar
sprinkle of salt
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1.5 tablespoons of orange juice
I creamed the sugar and the butter together than added all the rest of the ingredients (slowly) - makes a stiff cookie dough. I rolled it out on a large cutting board, used a cutter to make round cookies, laid them out on a cookie sheet and baked in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes at 325 degrees. For the ceremony indent each with a clean table knife with a cross symmetrical about the center of each round cookie (not too deep).
Variations include: adding spices, nuts, raisins - for the ceremony I recommend NOT adding chocolate chips.
Later on in the evolution of this recipe olive oil was substituted for the butter, but then the ratios of flour,sugar,oil might have changed a bit.

Use your best judgement depending on the flavor of the honey. Some honey, like acacia, is extra sweet, while some, like chestnut, is much less so, but the general rule to adhere to is as follows:
The Rule: For every 1 cup of sugar, substitute 1/2 to 2/3 cup honey.
