Honey Cookies From The Old Country- Grandma's
This recipe is for some simple but good cookies that Grandma could make without a written recipe. Mom translated the recipe into a written form and I am so grateful for this old wonderful treasure.
If making these for company Grandma would drizzle a little powdered sugar icing on these. it makes them pretty but the cookies are good either way.
When I was growing up we just called these Honey Cookies. But knowing where they came from and how many of our ancestors enjoyed them just makes them so much better.
In a saucepan over low heat, melt together sugar, shortening and honey. Let cool.
Mix together eggs, vanilla, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon. Gradually add to cooled honey mixture.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. his takes about 12-15 minutes.
