Honey Tips

Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Preheat oven to 325°. Cream together butter, peanut butter and brown sugar. Beat in honey in a slow, steady stream. Beat in egg. Sift dry ingredients and mix into batter. Chill dough for at least one hour. Measure one tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Place 3-inches apart on a cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork lightly dipped in flour to make a crisscross pattern. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until just firm. Remove from sheet and cool on a wire rack. Makes about 3 dozen.
