Notes
Now, this is my favorite type of "cookie"...not too sweet, good for dunking, and quite addictive. Its a european style butter cookie, based on a cookie from a now-extinct bakery in NYC. My mom used to make these with sugar, but commented that the original recipe called for.....Honey! Amaze your friends with just how much honey can add to a recipe..... Make two batches--each with a different type of honey (sourwood vs. orange blossom), and check out the results
