Honey Sugar Cookies

No one will ever know you’re not a professional baker when you make a batch of our honey sugar cookies! With easy to follow steps our recipe yields soft, chewy cookies that will be quickly eaten!


  • 1/2 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup of sugar (for rolling)


  • Heat oven to 300 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together butter and 1/4 cup sugar, then add the honey.
  • Slowly add the flour combination to honey mix and blend until even. It is important not to over-mix the dough.
  • Chill the dough for 10 minutes.
  • While the dough is in the refrigerator, fill a small bowl with the separate cup of sugar.
  • Drop rounded spoonfuls of the dough into the bowl of sugar and roll to coat, then place on baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 16 minutes, until the edges are golden and set.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring.
