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.


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In large bowl, combine sour cream, honey, eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. 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.
