Together with red and gold balls, stars, candles and all the other trimmings, these honey cookies are very eye-catching on the Christmas tree. Make some for the tree and some for eating!
Experiment with different types of honey. Those with a strong flavour work particularly well. If honey has turned solid in the jar, place the jar in hot water. Make sure the water is no hotter than 30°C, as overheating the honey causes the loss of important nutrients.
Christmas shapes they may be, but biscuits they aren't. Rock shapes would be a better description. There is no shortening in the recipe, perhaps that is why they don't work! These may make pretty decorations if you spent the time and effort, but as for biscuits, not worth the effort and clean up! - 23 Sep 2010
