At story hour a few weeks ago, the children read Honey Cookies by Meredith Hooper and we've made the cookies twice since. They are similar to snickerdoodles, though I don't like them quite as well. The dough is quite crumbly and not easy to form. M. and my husband very fond of them, however, and M. will recite portions of the book as we bake.
The book looks at where each ingredient to make the cookies comes from (e.g. 1,000 honeybees and a field of wheat) as a boy and his grandma bake their treats.
