Chocolate Chip Honey Cookies

Rated as 3.75 out of 5 Stars

"My grandmother would send a huge box of cookies and candies to us every Christmas when I was a child. She always included these cookies because they were my dad's favorite (mine too). I am allergic to walnuts so if I decide to add nuts I use almonds. Now my daughter and I enjoy making them together."

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Beat shortening, honey, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract; beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl; stir into honey mixture until just incorporated and dough comes together. Fold chocolate chips and almonds into dough. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges just begin to brown, 12 to 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can substitute any nut for the almonds. You can substitute butter for the shortening.
  • I have never counted how many cookies this makes; the first batch is usually gone before the second comes out of the oven (the batter always seems to disappear also)! I hope you enjoy. Also don't let them over-brown!

I swapped coconut oil for the butter and used 100% whole white wheat flour, but otherwise followed ingredients and instructions. The cookies turned out quite nicely with a somewhat cake-like tex...

This recipe makes a very light and soft texture cookie! Very good. I did add just a pinch more salt due to the extra sweetness of the honey. Great recipe!

Made with dark chocolate chips and local organic honey. Turned out scrumptious??

Is the flour measurement wrong? My cookies turned out flat and crispy
