Grandma's Honey Cookies, Day 2

Growing up, my grandmother's honey cookies were a big Christmas tradition.  They always seemed extra special because they need to cure for about 2 weeks after baking, so there's a high level of anticipation involved.  It takes two weeks because after baking the cookies are literally as hard as a rock.  If you bit one you'd probably break a tooth.  But through the magic of time and the moisture from a few slices of bread, after two weeks the cookies are softened and ready to frost.  And you will find that the wait was most definitely worth it.

Intrigued?  Here's the link to my grandma's honey cookie recipe.  You've got just enough time left to make these cookies and still be able to leave some out for Santa, so Happy Baking and Merry Christmas!
