The best honey cardamon & groundhog's day cookies

 


We have friends who are going through a very tough time right now. They live states away and there is nothing to be done ease the pain of their loss. I don't know what to do but want to do something so I baked. 

This is a Martha Stewart recipe.  We've never had them before and they are fantastic.


The honey came from my dad's bees and was a spring/summer/fall mix. I think most any honey would do well but a dark one like buckwheat.

The dough was a bit fiddly to emboss with the bee press.  I suppose having the dough at near freezing would have helped. 

I'm also going to make Groundhog's day cookies tomorrow.  'Tis the season and all.

I love these cookies and have been making them every year since about 2005 when my (not yet) husband and I went to Punxsutawney with my sister and (not yet) brother inlaw to celebrate the holiday. This is where the cookie cutter came from, a little souvenir shop on Main Street, Punxsutawney, PA. 

Cookies will be baked, packed and mailed. I don't know what else to do. But I know that something,  anything,  is better than nothing.

  1. it's the perfect thing to send, baked with love, sent with care, kindness is such an easy thing. To do something kind helps our feelings of helplessness, and to receive an act of kindness is to know someone thought of you and did something to show that thought. Plus everyone gets to eat home baked cookies.
