"One of the simplest sugar cookies ever! When baked, they are delicious and it's hard to keep them in the cookie jar for long...because everyone eats them too quickly."

Not a sweet dough, it makes a good cookie for icing/decorating. Dough was dry and hard to work. I added less flour, which made them much easier to roll and handle.

I decorated my cookies with vanilla frosting, so I substituted the lemon extract with vanilla. The honey is a great addition, and they turn out really crispy and keep forever.

I had to use wheat flour, but they were great anyhow! Hillary
