Honey Cookies for Christmas

18 Dec

With the girls all tucked away for winter, visions of sugarplums dance in my head. And these sugarplums will be made with honey. Do you have any favorite holiday honey recipes?

Almond & Honey-Butter Cookies

Beautiful thumbprint cookies that highlight the perfect marriage of almonds and honey. Definitely a “save the honeybee” cookie as almonds are utterly dependent on pollination by honeybees.

Sunflower Honey Chocolate Truffles

Sumptuous truffles made with neighborhood honey by Sweet Hive Chicago. Use a distinctive honey to highlight the flavor even more.

Sesame Honey Cookies

Nutty like halva but soft like a cookie, these anchor a cookie plate on the savory end of sweet.
