We recently celebrated our youngest granddaughter's 2nd birthday, and our daughter Jennifer made these wonderful honey cookies.  She gave me permission to reprint her recipe here.  I hope you'll enjoy them with some little ones like we did.

Yummy Honey Cookies
1/2 c shortening
1 c creamy peanut butter
1 c honey
2 eggs slightly beaten
3 c flour
1 c sugar
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

  • Directions
  1. In a mixing bowl, mix shortening, peanut butter and honey. Add eggs; mix well. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to peanut butter mixture and mix well.
  2. Roll into 1- to 1-1/2-in. balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten with a fork dipped in flour. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. Squeeze chocolate icing into forked lines to represent bees.
