Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour see notes below
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter see notes below, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Chocolate:
    • 1 chopped Honeycomb Bar
    • 1 cup chopped Chuao Honeycomb Bark (available in our boutique)
      • (otherwise use enough chopped Honeycomb bars to equal 2 1/4 cups, i.e. LOTS of chocolate!)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  • In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt together.
  • In another large bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat together the butter, and sugars until smooth and mixed together well.
  • Add the egg, honey, and vanilla and mix on low speed until mixed in.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture and mix in until just incorporated. Do not over mix.
  • Add chocolate and stir, again no over mixing, just until incorporated.
  • Chill dough.
  • Scoop or heaping tablespoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, 6 to 8 per pan, depending on size you are making.
  • Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned and the tops feel firm when lightly touched
  • Small cookies bake 8-10 minutes. Large cookies bake 10-13 minutes.
  • Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Makes  18 -30 cookies depending on size.

Notes

Tips: To avoid flat cookies: Be sure your butter is room temp (not melted or even softened), and try using cold/chilled dough if dough is warm: Just put it in the refrigerator to chill before baking. Don't over-mix cookie batter especially after the flour is added and add it gradually. Make sure your baking soda is not expired.
