  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1-1/3 to 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, then honey and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
