These cookies are a recipe from a really old family reunion cookbook that wasn’t even our family – I think it was given to us as a gift. It’s made up of index cards on a keyring, and the cover is a cute family portrait drawn in Sharpie. The random places your favorite recipes come from…
I’m not totally sure these cookies get any healthier because of it, but they use honey instead of white sugar. That helps them stay chewy for a long time, and that makes this chewy cookie fiend pretty happy.
Here’s what you need for about two dozen cookies:
- 1/2 c. butter at room temperature
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. honey
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 c. AP flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 3/4 c. chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 375. Beat the margarine, brown sugar, honey and egg until creamed, and then fold in the remaining ingredients with a spatula.
Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silpat. Bake until set and light brown around the edges – the edges will look done a lot sooner than the middle. Bake for ten minutes and let stand for at least five after removing from the oven.
