Honey Butter Sugar Cookies

I am admittedly late getting you this recipe if you are going to make these Honey Butter Sugar Cookies in time for Valentine’s Day tomorrow. You do have time, but you would have to make the dough tonight and bake and glaze them tomorrow since the dough needs to set in the refrigerator preferably overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours. But, really, who doesn’t want fresh baked cookies on Valentine’s Day?!

But, if you don’t have time for them this holiday, don’t fret! This is not an exclusive Valentine’s Day cookie recipe. These sugar cookies work for any holiday and Easter is right around the corner! Today is actually Fat Tuesday and Lent is starting tomorrow — Easter is super early this year on April 1st! Stick to the same recipe and change up your cookie cutter – bunnies, roses, little chickadees!? Ha, you get the point.

Honey Butter Sugar Cookies

Every year for Lent I give up sweets. So I’ve packed up these cookies and sent them off to work with Walter (he has some pretty lucky coworkers who often reap the benefits of my recipe testing 🙂 ) The best comparison for these Honey Butter Sugar Cookies with White Chocolate Glaze are those those pink and white glazed animal crackers. Only these are about 4 times the size and equally as addicting which could make for a dangerous combination 😉
