I have wanted to make some natural honey-like cookies that would look beautiful as bee skeps. I considered gingerbread, but that tastes too much like December. It finally dawned on my that I could use my Heavenly Bites cookie recipe to make some Beehive Blondies.
Heavenly Bites Butterscotch Cookies
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter (or use vegetable spray) and flour a rimmed cookie sheet. In a mixing bowl, beat melted butter and brown sugar together. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix. Pour the batter onto a cookie sheet and smooth it out. It should cover about 2/3 of the pan. You are basically making very thin brownies.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx 15-18 minutes, depending on your oven. Cookie base should have some "give" when pressed. If you allow it to bake until crisp, you won't be able to cut out shapes.
Cool until just warm, cut out beehive and bee shapes to enjoy with a friend. Yum!
