11 Aug 2015 – Grandma Flagella’s Honey Cookie Recipe

Thanks so much Joanne!

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 cups of flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 pound of butter melted and cooled
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
Honey Mixture:
  • 2 cups honey
  • 2 tbsp apple jelly
  • 1/2 cup white wine or pink Catawba
  • Bring to a boil and then shut it off
Directions:
  • Beat eggs, add sugar and mix well.  Then add the melted butter and mix well.
  • Add flour and baking powder to mixture slowly, mixing well by hand and with a wooden spoon until soft to roll like a pie crust.  Roll out on counter top or wooden board.  Cut into strips.  Using the tines of a fork, press the long edges of each strip, and make one loop to look like a bow.
  • Deep fry until golden brown, remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Then place cookie strips in the honey mixture (from above) and put in a crock by layers. Sprinkle each layer with cinnamon and chopped walnuts. Cover the crock with a dish and aluminum foil, place in a cool dark place for at least 2 weeks.

  1. This is an interesting sounding recipe. Do you leave them in the crock for 2 weeks before eating? Or will the cookies keep for up to 2 weeks?

    I’m sure your family is happy to have you saving the family history and food.

    • According to my husband and Sister in law, You are supposed to let the cookies stay in the crock pot 2 weeks before eating them. This gives you the best taste from the honey mixture cinnamon and nuts. But my sister in law says they always snuck some beforehand.
