Honey, honey, honey!

Way back in October, K's class learned about the letter "H."  Now, at one point, K told us that she was "allergic" to jelly.  Please, fear not!  My child is NOT allergic to jelly; she just decided for some odd reason that she didn't like it. 
So, I came up with the GREAT idea to do peanut butter and honey sandwiches.  A few weeks ago, she suddenly lost her allergy to jelly and now it's okay...but she does still prefer honey.  So, I knew that she would LOVE the "H" recipe.  They were "Honey Cookies!" 
Thankfully, these didn't have any common allergens; so, I let K take them to share with her friends at school.  She was SO excited.  I think one of her favorite things is taking things to school, so this made her day!  I thought they were pretty good, too. 
Very moist and chewy in the best possible way.  Try them out!  And give some to you Honey!  ;-)  And a bonus picture of K in her hat lookin' like a "cool dude!" (her words!)
Honey Cookies
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. 
In a bowl, add both flours, sugar, soda, salt, cinnamon, and butter.  Mix together well with a mixer.
Add the honey and eggs.  Mix again.
Using a spoon, scoop small spoonfuls onto a baking sheet or stone.
*Place the stone in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes or until cookies are golden.
