Honey Cookies

These are cookies for people - not dogs. (Just to be clear!)

I made these and used a bone-shaped cookie cutter to take to my dog's daycare for the people that work there, which is called "No Bonz About It."

These are like sugar cookies, but they have a silky honey flavor to them - really nice taste!

This recipe comes from my Betty Crocker cook book.
