Recipe: Honey Cookies

Make these cookies with local eggs and honey. They are soft and cake-like. To store them for a very long time, put them in a closed container with a slice of soft bread.

Honey Cookies

2 Cups Sugar

3 Eggs

2 Cups Honey

½ – 1 teaspoon ground cloves

2 level teaspoons baking soda

¾ teaspoon anise extract (optional)

¼ cup cold water (¼ cup more may be added)

Approximately 6 cups unbleached flour (enough to make dough stiff enough to handle)


Mix together all ingredients and chill overnight. Preheat oven to 350°. Roll out dough and cut into shapes. The dough is very sticky and rolls best when it is cold.  Work with just a small amount of dough at a time and keep the rest in the refrigerator.  Bake cookies until they are golden brown.
