Soft Honey Cookies

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by brokenburner

I got this from a cookbook, though I forget which one, after a long search. This recipe makes a wonderful soft cookie, similar to Ostreicher's; perfect for Rosh Hashanah! My KitchenAid only fits 6 cups of flour, so I halve the recipe and use 5 eggs.

Texture was wonderful, but the dough tasted more flavorful than the cookie. These also bake up huge because of the amount of baking powder. I'll make them again but with less BP and drizzle it with something.
