I was looking for a recip that was cheap and the ingredients were already in my cupboard. I followed the recipe exactly except I added walnuts because my honey had walnuts in the jar. I wanted chewy cookies, and I noticed they looked Cakey while they cooked so I gently flattened them with a spatula 2 times while they baked. The texture was chewy, the flavor was well balanced. I will make these delicious cookies again. I especially like that they don't have a lot of sugar like other honey cookie recipes. The icing gives it a nice little twang! My 9 year old daughter really enjoyed them also. I could see experimenting with this by adding some ground flax seeds and raisins. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe!
