Cookies, Cakes, and Breads with honey
I'm looking for suggestions for recipes for cookies, cakes, and breads with honey, especially ones that would be good for the holidays. I have been given about 5 lbs. of honey. I love the flavor of honey and have found that it makes baked goods keep longer. Thanks in advance!
I don't actually bake very much with honey, but I felt sad that this thread hasn't been getting many replies!
I'm always happy to substitute honey for various other syrups - I think honey subbed in for corn syrup in any recipe would yield a result that is far more delicious and healthful (maybe a tad less sweet, too). In a pecan pie, say. I also tend to use honey as the sweetener in my homemade granola, for which I don't use a recipe but is delicious with plain yogurt and (more) honey for a quick breakfast! Since you're asking for cookies, you could always do something similar in bar form, like this: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/ho....
Smitten kitchen has several honey recipes in their archives (I am going to be banned from chowhound for incessantly plugging this site! I don't mean to, honestly!), such as this honey cake: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2008/0...
She has various apple cake and challah featuring honey too, all of which seem quite festive to me!
