Tuesday’s Tidbits (& Sips): 02 June 2009

This will be blast from the past for some of you, as it is a rerun recipe from my earlier attempt at a food-related blog.  It’s a recipe that won’t disappoint, though.

I’d like to share with you a cookie recipe for one of my absolutely favorite cookies of all time.  They are soft – a big plus in my cookie ranking book – and delicious.  These pair well with a cup of hot or iced tea, slightly sweetened with honey…

Honey Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

1 cup margarine, softened
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
6 1/2 tbs. honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda

  1. Sift together flour and baking soda.  Set aside.
  2. Cream margarine and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add eggs, honey and vanilla extract and mix until just combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients in batches (about 1/3 of the dry ingredients in each batch) and stir until thoroughly combined after each addition.
  5. Refrigerate dough for about two hours or until firm.
  6. Pull off and roll dough into about 1-inch pieces and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.  Cookies should be lightly golden on top.
  8. Cool cookies on cookie sheet for approximately 5 minutes and then transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.  Make sure that cookies are completely cooled before storing.
