Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Preheat oven to 350°. Combine sugar, honey and butter in a small pan and cook over low heat until just boiling, stirring occasionally. Cool. Sift remaining ingredients into a bowl. Stir in honey mixture. Knead until dough is smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide dough in half and roll out one piece at a time on lightly floured surface until 1/8-inch thick. Cut dough with cookie cutter. Place cookies on buttered baking sheets. Bake until lightly browned, approximately 15 minutes. Cool on rack and store in an airtight container.
