Honey Cookies

Traci Coleman


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.

6GLAZE: Combine powdered sugar, almond extract and 2 Tbsp water. Stir in, 1 teaspoon at a time, additional water until glaze is spreadable.
7FROSTING: Mix all ingredients in small bown, adding the water 1 teaspoon at a time until frosting is thin enough to drizzle or thick enough to be used in a decorating bag, depending on how you are going to decorate the cookies.
8Once cookies are completely cooled, spread glaze on cookies and then decorate with frosting.
