Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


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.
