These were delicious...as Leta said, not too sweet. I added about 1/2C cinnamon chips because I had some on hand; other than that I made them as written. Next time I make them I will try using 1/4C applesauce and 1/4C butter because I'm always trying to cut fat. It might change their thin, crispy texture, but I doubt it. 9 minutes was enough to make them medium brown and crisp. The brown sugar sprinkled on top is a nice touch! These cookies kind of reminded me of the cinnamon toast I ate as a child...fond memories. Thanks, s'kat!!

It was good. My family liked it a lot. They ate it in two days. I baked it about 10 minutes. It was perfect. It is good opportunity to get rid of old honey. Yield about 20, not 36.

Wonderful kid cookies! Flavorful, not to sweet. The honey and cinnamon is a great blend of flavor. I cooked them about 8 minutes, but I like my cookies soft. Thank you for sharing this recipe. If you want them crispy you will probably want to cook them longer as S'kat suggests.

A nice change from the usual. I was a little nervous when the batter looked more like icing than like cookie dough, but it baked up just fine. I baked them about 10 minutes and they were perfect for us. Thanks for suggesting this recipe!

I only cooked them for 10 minutes and they turned out GREAT! I added 1 cup of oatmeal to the recipe (it sounds like a lot, I know) and they were fantastic. I made one batch with oatmeal and one without, and my husband and I agreed that with oatmeal is a little better (and has more fiber). GREAT RECIPE! This could be used as a base for many different cookie recipes (next time I think I'll do oatmeal, craisin, pecan.) Thanks again!

It is traditional to eat food sweetened with honey in honor of the Jewish New Year so you have a sweet New Year. It is also traditional to make honey cake, but I wanted something a little different. These were really easy and turned out nice. I had one problem. I was so worried that I was going to over mix the batter when I added the flour that I don't think I mixed it enough. I mixed until the flour mixture was mixed in, but in the end the batter wasn't consistent. The first cookies I baked from the top of the batter was slightly thicker. When I went to spoon out the second batch they were much thinner I noticed and then baked very flat unlike the first ones which barely flattened. Next time I won't be so worried and I will just mix it a little lonnger. By the way, the house smells wonderful from the cinnamon and honey.

I made these cookies at Christmastime, and I couldn't bring myself to give them away! I love the flavor, and the thin, chewy-ness of them, since I pulled them from the oven a little early! So easy and yummy! My husband (from England) wants them for his tea and cookie routine!
