Needed to Complete Cookies
Honey Spice Oatmeal Cookies
In a large bowl, beat 2 sticks butter and 3/4 cup honey with electric mixer until creamy. Add 1 large egg; beat well. Add half of cookie mix; beat well. Add remaining cookie mix; beat well. Divide dough into thirds; place each on a piece of plastic wrap and flatten to 1/2 inch thickness. Wrap tightly; chill at least 4 hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove one portion of dough from refrigerator. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten to 1/8 inch thickness with bottom of glass dipped in granulated sugar. Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, just until centers are set. (Cookies will feel soft. Do not overbake.)
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
Store tightly covered.
Decorated Cookies: Decorate cooled cookies with melted dark or white chocolate, ready-to-spread frosting, decorator frosting in tubes, assorted small candies or candy sprinkles.
Thumbprint Cookies: Use thumb to make a deep indentation in center of each cookie dough ball. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until very light golden brown. Remove cookies from oven; press small dark or white chocolate candy into indentation or fill with 1/2 teaspoon preserves. Cool and store as directed.
