Chinese Tea Cookies

1 cup water
1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
5 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 cup honey
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs

Bring water to boil. 
Add brown sugar to dissolve.
Whisk together flour and baking powder.
Combine honey and oil; beat in eggs. Add to flour mixture and stir to combine. Add sugar syrup and mix until smooth. Let rest 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover cookie sheets with baking parchment.
Scoop dough onto cookie sheets and press flat (about 1/2 inch thick). Cookies should be 3 inches wide for traditional size, but it's OK to make them smaller. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
Cool slightly on cookie sheet, then move cookies to a rack. Makes 20 large cookies.
