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.

How to Make Honey Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening.
  2. In large bowl, mix powdered sugar, butter, honey, almond extract and egg. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Sprinkle a clean surface with flour. Put dough on surface and roll until 1/8 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters.
  4. Place cookies about 1 inch apart on cookie sheet and bake 6 - 8 minutes until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool.
  5. While cooling, make glaze (in photo above, the white on the cookie is the glaze) and frosting (in photo above, the black and red is the frosting).
  6. GLAZE: Combine powdered sugar, almond extract and 2 Tbsp water. Stir in, 1 teaspoon at a time, additional water until glaze is spreadable.
  7. FROSTING: 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.
  8. Once cookies are completely cooled, spread glaze on cookies and then decorate with frosting.
