In a stand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar for 5 minutes, then add the oil, baking powder, cinnamon, orange rind and honey. 

Slowly incorporate the flour until the dough comes together and is not sticky to the touch.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then form dough into walnut sized balls. Shape into logs and then press down so that cookies form an oval shape.

Brush egg on top of cookies and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
