These delicious Beehive Cookies call for no oil, sugar, butter or white flour – cookie-recipe staples – so the baked cookie has a unique texture. However, they’re delicious and a very respectable “healthy” sweet treat.  

Beehive Cookies

  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

Heat oven to 350°F.

In large bowl, combine sour cream, honey, eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Yields 3 dozen cookies.

Hmmmm these are.......weird. The taste is okay but they are like little hockey pucks. Was there supposed to be some levening in them?

Barf. These were extremely un-palatable. Everyone in my family spit them out. The chickens liked them, though.
