It’s become a little bit of a tradition in my family to bake honey cookies for Valentines Day. I’m not sure how it started really. But whenever this time of year comes around, my mom and sisters and I start dreaming about all spice, cinnamon, cloves and honey! The baking process is pretty simple, but the aroma in the kitchen is like no other. I shared the recipe for these fabulous cookies with the Clickinmoms blog a while back, but I somehow I had no picture to share along with it. I figured this year, in the annual honey cookie baking festivities, I would snap a few photos so you can see just how lovely they are! I’ve also included the recipe so you can smell and taste their deliciousness as well. Enjoy!
Happy Valentines Honey Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup honey
3 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp all spice
For cookies: Combine all cookie ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Mix until a smooth ball forms; using your hands will probably work the best.
Roll thin using a rolling pin and cut into desired shape.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes.
For icing: Combine icing sugar and water to desired consistency. Add food coloring as you mix. Once the cookies have cooled, apply icing with a knife and decorate as you like!
