Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl beat butter, sugar, honey and vanilla with an electric mixer, until well-blended. Beat in egg, flour and salt. Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and chill at least 3 hours or until firm enough to roll out. To cut out and bake cookies, roll half of the dough, on a lightly-floured surface, ¼-inch thick. (Make sure dough is cold while you are working with it.) Cut into desired shapes and place one-inch apart on baking sheets. Decorate with sprinkles, sugar, nuts, etc. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Store in airtight containers. Makes a little over 2 dozen 2 ½ inch cookies.
