Honey Cookies

My brother-in-law keeps bees.  A couple weeks ago, he brought us some honey that he harvested from his hives, and I have been pondering all sorts of things to make with it.

This afternoon I decided to make some sugar cookies...well, honey cookies.  They are light and have a subtle taste of honey that is spectacular!  I rolled half of the cookies in raw sugar and left the other half plain.  Bruce and I both prefer the plain ones, but the ones with the sugar have a fun crunch to them, and look sparkly and fun, so you can make them either way.

If you love honey, you should give these a taste!

Honey Cookies


2/3 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. honey
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
raw sugar (optional)


Beat the oil, sugar and honey together thoroughly.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.  Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt and beat until the dough forms.  Chill the dough for half an hour.

Preheat oven to 350.

Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls, you can then roll them in the raw sugar if desired.  Bake the cookies on a silpat or parchment paper-lined baking sheet for 7-8 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned.

Allow the cookies to completely cool on the baking sheets before eating (they will settle and firm up).
