I love Rosh Hashanah. And I love eating honey: honey and apples, honey in the challah, honey on the challah, honey apple cake, honey on my chicken… honey, honey, honey!
Of course that also means local honey. Luckily we have a lot of local honey to choose from. These are just a few that happen to be in my cupboard.
So, when I found this recipe for Honey Biscuits (what we would call cookies) on the Monday Morning Cooking Club website, I was very excited. But I did not end up being the one to make the cookies, my daughter did. Then Cam helped her with cutting out the cookie shapes. (Truth be told, this was last year, when Arielle was still home for the holidays, this year she had to return to Israel too early).
I love them! Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.
