Reindeer Honey Sugar Cookies

It wouldn’t be the holiday season without decadent sugar cookies! This delicious recipe uses 1/3 cup of Sue Bee® honey to give these cookies a boost of flavor. For a fun twist, turn a jingle bell cookie cutter upside down and top it with our Reindeer Glaze, pretzels and chocolate candies to give it the reindeer effect! It’s sure to be a hit at your next cookie exchange!


  • 1/3 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 300 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, soda and salt.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the Sue Bee® honey and cream well.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Finish by hand if needed. Do not over mix the dough.

  • Once chilled, place in oven and bake 12-15 minutes or until golden.
