Celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day with These Sugar Cookie Recipes. Some are Made with Honey!

To celebrate National Sugar Cookie day, we gathered some of our favorite Bee Inspired cookie recipes. Everyone loves sugar cookies! We’ve created a few of our own recipes and reached out to a few experts to mix it up a bit.

One of the best things about sugar cookies is that there are so many different recipes, and you can adapt these recipes however you wish. Large or small, soft or crunchy, perfectly shaped or just round, it’s up to you! Add dried fruits and chopped nuts for texture, roll the cookie dough in sugar or sprinkle with honey crystals to make them really special.

Enjoy Sugar Cookie Day with someone you love, and get baking together!

Baking tip: One great way to have fresh baked cookies on hand is to roll the dough into balls and freeze in an airtight container. This way, you can quickly and easily throw a few onto a baking sheet and pop in the oven whenever you want a plate of freshly baked cookies!

All of our cookie recipes featured here that call for honey are made with Eastern Shore Honey, nature’s sweetener.

Vegan Sugar Cookies, Really? Why YES!

These vegan sugar cookies by our friend Marly Beelman of Namely Marly are also amazing and even better for you than cookies loaded with butter! Ok, maybe not that much better for you, but definitely guilt-free.

Chai Tea Cookies are similar to soft ginger cookies, but pack a bigger flavor punch due to the blend of Chai spices of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper. New to chai? Chai is the word for tea in some countries. It is a centuries-old beverage where spices are brewed in milk, then sweetened. The combinations of spices vary from region to region based on availability and tradition.

That’s a Latte in a Cookie

These Chai Tea Cookies are a new twist on the classic sugar cookie-they have a punch of gingerbread spices! We chose to use our Wildflower Honey from the eastern shore in place of sugar, though you can choose any of our honey for this recipe.

Sugar cookies do not need a special occasion and they don’t take that long to whip up. Find the recipe that is easiest and most enjoyable for you!
