Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Made With Crystalized Honey

Yes, another cookie recipe and Oatmeal Raisin at that. They are another “healthy” cookie as far as I am concerned and these ones are among the top.

If you have ever bought raw honey, you have most likely had at least a little crystalize on you. It’s ok when this happens. A hot water bath and it will be good as new. I tend to buy raw honey a few gallons at a time. While it’s still fresh and in it’s most liquid state, I portion it into jars for easier handling. In time, the honey crystalizes.

The first time I had wanted to make these cookies my butter was froze, so I had to wait. The second time I tried to make these the only honey I had left was solid. I wasn’t waiting any longer for these cookies.

To hell with it! Solid honey it is!

They actually turned out really well and I have been making them like that ever since.
