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!
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

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.
