This recipe really represents the Midwest to me because of all the bees and honey in the state of Wisconsin. We alone sold more than 90 gallons of honey last fall, and we're just small-scale compared to our neighbors!

"I really enjoy the flavor. I got 45 out of the batch. They didn't raise much & I had to turn my oven down to 325 or the bottom of the cookie got too dark. I also shortened the baking time to 11 minutes. I may make them again but think I will try baking soda instead of baking powder."

"These were great! I used chocolate chips instead of the butterscotch. Just the right amount of sweetness."

"I was hoping they would be a little sweeter. I was really disappointed at how plain they were I didn't really think they had much of a taste at all."

"I was expecting them to be a "crunchy" cookie so was a little disappointed in the texture but they taste ok. Not sure that I would make them again though."

"I think these are some of the best cookies I have ever had! I thought they might end up being too sweet after reading the ingredients, but they turned out perfectly! They have a very different chewy texture that I love and the flavor is amazing. :o)"
