Honey Bee Cookies

I think baked goods sweetened by honey have a warm taste to them.  These are even better the second day, but they don't last that long anymore around here!  I double the batch.  The recipe comes from a children's cookbook produced by Gold Medal Flour called Alpha Bakery.

Honey Bee Cookies
1/2 c. margarine or butter,softened
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. honey
1 egg
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Beat margarine, brown sugar, honey and egg in a medium bowl on medium speed, scraping the bowl, until smooth.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake until set and light brown around the edges (surfaces of cookies will appear shiny), 7-9 min.  Let stand 3-5 min. before removing from cookie sheet with a metal spatula onto a wire rack.  Makes 36 cookies.
Variations: Honey Cinnamon Cookies: 2 Tbsp. sugar and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and sprinkle on cookies immediately after removing from the oven.
Honey Coconut Cookies: Stir 1 c. shredded coconut into batter.
