Celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day with These Sugar Cookie Recipes. Some are Even 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! Most of our cookie recipes featured here are made with Eastern Shore Honey, nature’s sweetener.
