No one liked these. I tried 8 min 10 and 12. I tried with the cinnamon and sugar on top and I tried without. I won't make these again.
I was looking for ways to use up some mesquite honey that had crystallized, and after reading all of the reviews I decided to also bake a half of a batch with several changes. I creamed 1/4 cup of butter with the sugar, added the egg and then the honey and also 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. To the flour, baking soda and cinnamon I also added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/8 tsp cloves. I added them to the sugar honey mixture and then stirred in 1/4 cup of chopped pecans and 1/4 cup of dark raisins. Batter turned out too thin so I then added 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour. I turned the oven up to 375 and baked them for 14 minutes. When I removed them from the oven they were very puffy. After they cooled, they were wonderfully chewy and not dry at all. The taste was quite yummy.
these cookies were pretty good. the honey taste kinda comes in as an after taste. i made half the recipe and had to add about an eighth of a cup of oil because it was crumbly and dry. that did the trick. i also added more cinnamon than the recipe calls for and just a bit of nutmeg(i got curious after i read the description about nutmeg being called a secret ingredient). before i baked them, i sprinkled with a pinch of sugar. i topped some with raisins, some with mini chocolate chips, and the rest plain. they're great with milk! thanks for sharing! :D
Unfortunately, these didn't turn out for me. The main ingredient I could taste were the eggs. I hardly tasted any honey. I really wanted to like this easy recipe but alas, no go. Sorry.
I thought these were pretty good- they definitely taste like honey. My husband didn't like them too much. For a low fat cookie, it's a great recipe!
I loved how this recipe was simple, had no butter, and lots of honey flavor. However, the flour taste was just overwhelming. Am I doing something wrong? I taste the honey but mostly I taste flour. I make a lot of cookies and never had this problem with other cookies. I thought these may have overcooked, so tried cooking shorter with a second batch, but it still tasted like flour.
very good! i was surprised how well these cookies came out considering the fact that i'm not much of a honey fan. i would definitely make these again!
AAAHHH! So GOOD! You can really taste the honey in these, which usually tends to get overwhelmed in recipes like this. I used egg whites and half whole wheat flour to make myself feel less guilty, and they turned out absolutely perfect. Soft and cakey and sweet. Excellent recipe.
These are wonderful! My family ate them all in one afternoon. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.
YUM-O!! I didn't have enough honey so I halved the recipe. Delicious!
