Soft and moist cut out cookie passed down from my Great Great Grandmother. Appearance is soft and puffy. Cookie itself is not too sweet. The cream cheese frosting adds to the overall flavor but doesn't hide the good honey taste. Cut out shapes and frost and decorate for your favorite holiday!

  • I made these last night and they were absolutely awesome. I don't like cream cheese however, so I used my own vanilla butter cream frosting recipe which went great with these cookies. Will definitely be making these again. Awesome cookie. Hubby loved them too. :)

  • I baked these cookies for my family for Christmas and they were actually a hit. I like to try different recipies every year for different types of cookies and thought I would try this one. I will make these again next year.

  • No matter what cutter shapes the cookie, they are, by far, the best and most unique you'll ever taste! Bake one yourself...
