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.
