Honey buns extra-light.

This recipe came out from a magazine clipping that arrived to me through a close friend some years ago.
It was about "honey cookies" but, even if I followed it to perfection, what I had at the end was very far from a cookie!
Anyway the taste is good and dainty and this recipe is so light that can become a non-guilty treat.
You need:

1/2 cup milk or less

1 egg

2 cups 1/4 all purpose flour

1/2 cup honey

baking powder

Mix warm honey with flour and baking powder, add egg then milk enough to have a smooth dough.
Let it rest for about 1 hour in the fridge, covered, then knead again and divide it into pieces of about 0.70 oz., put them on a baking tin, brush with a little milk then bake for 15-20 minutes at 355 F°.
They're good but the day after they become a little bit stale because they have no fat inside, keep them in a plastic bag to prevent it or heat them a little before eating them.
You can add about 1/2 cup of butter to the mix to have a richer treat.
