Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 350°. Spray an 8-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl stir together flour and confectioners’ sugar. Add the butter pieces and blend until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Press mixture evenly onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake about 15 minutes until golden. Remove from oven. Reduce temperature to 325°.
Whisk together all filling ingredients until well combined. Pour over prepared crust and bake 25 minutes or until filling is golden brown. Let cool on a rack and then chill in refrigerator. When ready to serve, sprinkle cookies with sifted confectioners’ sugar and cut into squares.
