The unmistakable, rich taste of honey complimented by salty, smooth butter is the star of these delightful, Honey Jumble Button Cookies. Simply created by melting butter, honey, and the caramel goodness of brown sugar which is set to cool before adding the dry ingredients including plain, fluffy flour, baking soda and the aromatic seasoning of cinnamon with mixed spice for added richness. The tender dough gets kneaded a time or two before being wrapped
snuggly in plastic wrap and set in the fridge for half an hour. The chilly dough is formed into petit balls and flattened on a cookie sheet to bake up sweet and chewy. When cool, add a button of homemade icing and enjoy!
