Soft Honey Cookies

Soft Honey Cookies created by Jubes

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.

    Nice texture, but taste was rather bland. Definitely needed a frosting or something.

    These cookies are really yummy. I had some neighbor's kids over, and they couldn't stop eating them! The best part is that they are not overly sweet, and have a nice honey-flavor. They're really great for Rosh Hashana :)

    My family loved these cookies. The mixture was extremely quick to prepare and the instructions were very clear. I love seeing photos of the recipes that have been prepared by the poster too. Cooking time was spot on. I made a half batch and used 5 eggs. Have ended up with 40 cookies. Simple quick recipe that uses pantry staples. I can see that we will be making these again. These cookies had the taste and texture of English "Honey Jumble" biscuits (minus the pink or white icing).Thanks for a great recipe :)
