These are incredible, and almost absurdly easy to make! I made mine smaller around so I'd get more, smaller cookies, and cut them more like 1/3 inch thick. They're perfectly sweet without being too sweet, crisp edges, chewy middles, and at the size I made them only take two bites. Perfect addition to the holiday mix, thank you!

Very good cookies and yummy, I'm repeating them for Christmas. I used natural honey which has small crystals in it but seemed to work okay, thanks for your recipe Mikekey
