Butter Cookies for Memorial Day!

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


Who's doing a little Memorial Day cookout this weekend? We probably won't be hosting one, as our deck is only half way complete, but we did get a few invitations to others. Never one to arrive to a gathering empty handed, I thought I'd try a new cookie recipe from Golden Blossom Honey to take to our cookouts this weekend. I did a test run of these Butter Cookies yesterday, and they reminded me of my favorite sugar cookie, but only calls for 1/2 the sugar I normally use in them. They were so soft, moist and chewy, just how I love my cookies. And, even though my dogs are very good about staying off the counters, I'm pretty sure they helped themselves to a few while I was out working in my garden today! They're so tasty, they turn a good soul into a bad one, I tell ya!


Ingredients

1/2 cup butter or margarine (at room temperature)
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

GET THE FULL RECIPE HERE

The cookies are very easy to cut out and shape, as well as decorate with royal icing. I am feeling a little more patriotic this year as my sweet, first born nephew just left this week for his training in the Marines.

With Memorial Day weekend here, and my patriotic pride, I made some red, white and blue star cookies to show how simple they are to cut with cookie cutters.


I want to wish all of my U.S. friends a Happy Memorial Day! To our veterans, I thank you for your service. To everyone else, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'll see you again on Tuesday :)

You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.

    1. Yeah, I think they are like shortbread, but I can't recall if shortbread cookies are crunchy or chewy?

    2. crunchy when they cool off! You have a recipe for Earl Grey shortbread in my DEZZ IN THE KITCHEN album over at Facebook :)

  2. You're so much better than Martha Stewart will ever be. Those look great. I wonder what they do to a bad soul...I'm wondering, uh, for a friend. Wink.

    2. Robin- tell your stepson thank you for his service. My oldest son wanted to join but with his heart issues he is not able to. He is so disappointed that he can not follow his dad's footsteps.

  22. My brother had a friend who didn't join the army with him because he found it too rough. So he then joined the Marine Corps... My brother has told me some stories about some of the physical requirements, but I've always assumed the Marines (from their reputation of toughness) would have greater challenges.
