This old-fashioned cookie has a pleasant honey-cinnamon flavor and a tender texture that resembles cake. It has been a family favorite for years and I thought the recipe should be shared with your readers.

"These were great! I doubled the recipe because I saw how it only made 16 cookies, and I got 46 cookies(using a 1T sized cookie scoop to make them). The dough was really sticky, but that isn't a problem. The cookies were perfectly sweet, and you could taste the cinnamon and honey. They were kinda dense, but not crispy, which in my opinion is perfect."
