Here's a taste of what I spent my day doing. (God I'm awful...)
Honey cookies! I've been wanting these, and I'm still working on the recipe (which is adapted from another recipe), but at least the consistency is right finally! Or at least close enough. I wanted to get cookies which a bit of a crunch to them, like most peanut butter cookies I've had, but it seems like given the amount of honey in these it's not really possible.
1/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1-1/2 cups of flour
3/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg**
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix butter, both sugars, honey, and egg in a mixing bowl. Then add the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. The dough should be a little less firm than peanut butter, or there about. If it seems a bit runny, add more flour (but 1-1/2 cups should be plenty). Place spoonfuls of dough on a baking pan or cookie sheet spaced about 1.5" apart, and bake for 7-10 minute, until the sides brown. Don't cook it too long because honey can get really nasty if it's over cooked.
Recipe makes about 16 cookies.
(*I like to be able to taste a bit of salt in cookies, so this is what I use for this recipe. I really do feel it is necessary for this recipe, especially since I haven't worked in any citrus or acid into this recipe yet. The honey, while delicious, needs something to act against it.)
I've eaten too many of these, since I was playing with the recipe today.
