Honey Nut CookiesHoney nut cookies are good anytime.  My family loves anything made with honey in the recipe.  These honey nut cookies are so good and children love them. They won’t last long!  This is a soft, chewy cookie that is great in fall for any gathering or tailgating.  Make them as a gift for a friend.  Give them for Christmas.  These cookies are fun to make with children and grand children and make yummy snacks with milk.  Serve them with coffee for a treat. This recipe could be doubled if you want to make a lot at one time.  You might like our recipe for Old Fashioned Soft Molasses Cookies, too.

  2. Barbara Dodge says:

    can I use all, all-purpose flour and omit using part whole wheat flour?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I only make them using the recipe, Barbara. I don’t know.

  3. Could I substitute chocolate chips for the raisins without compromising the flavor of the cookies?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can try it. I never have.
