Whole Wheat-Honey Cookies
Who doesn’t love cookies? Here at Kathey Jo’s Kitchen, that statement is particularly true. I love trying and making new desserts, as my husband Rob and I adore them. When it comes to cookies, there’s truly no limit as to what you can enjoy and indulge in, and that’s I regularly want to try and share new recipes. When you can combine cookies with the sweetness of honey, the results speak for themselves, and you’ll see the satisfaction on the faces of whoever you share them with.
If your pantry has the standard ingredients that you use for baking, odds are good you could find everything you’re looking for that it takes to make these delicious honey cookies! The recipe is flexible as well, and I also recommend using these same concepts and ingredients to make honey cinnamon cookies, which are delicious and loved by cinnamon lovers everywhere. These are cookie recipes not to be overlooked, and I’m pleased to share them!

wheat flour in the refrigerator or freezer. It’s a good idea to let the flour come to room temperature before using it for
