From GRIT Magazine: Baking with Honey These delicious Beehive Cookies call for no oil, sugar, butter or white flour – cookie-recipe staples – so the baked cookie has a unique texture. However, they’re delicious and a very respectable “healthy” sweet treat.
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup pecans, finely chopped toasted
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- In large bowl, combine sour cream, honey, eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Yields 3 dozen cookies.
Made these tonight with little success. The mixture needed extra flour in order to place on the tray and when cooked we couldn't decide whether they were a too-soft cookie or a too-hard scone. Taste was O.K. but they will need to be slathered with butter to enjoy with a cuppa.
