Homemade Cookie Recipes Honey Cookies

Homemade cookie recipes don't get easier and quicker than these honey cookies.

This is from our collection of sensationally easy recipes and it takes just 20 minutes from starting the process to pulling them out of the oven.

What I love about this homemade recipe, is it's made from just 4 ingredients and these are more than likely already in your pantry.

...and naturally as with most authentic homemade goodies, they are absolutely yummy!

I made these quickly last week when I realized there were no little treats for the kids' lunch boxes. So, I made these from ingredients that are always available in my pantry.

Afterall, it was 9 pm and I didn't feel like going to the supermarket at that hour.

In the pantry, I found plain flour, honey, butter and a shaker bottle of mixed spice and this meant the kids were able to have freshly baked homemade treats for their school lunches.

You can make the cookie drops smaller and flatter so that the result is thinner, much like brandy snaps.

Alternatively if you prefer them chewy and "meaty", make the drops larger. The result is a thicker cookie.

Flatten them a little when spooning them onto the cookie sheet, so that they're an even thickness.

I recommend the use of non-stick cookie sheets so as to minimize work. Otherwise be certain to line the cookie tray with baking paper and be sure to grease it well.
