Egg: Use 1 large egg to act as the binder for the cookie dough.
Flour: For the base of the cookie dough, use 2 cups of all-purpose flour.

How to Make Honey Bear Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper and set them aside for later use.
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the honey, butter, vanilla extract, and eggs.
Next, in a separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Then, add the flour mixture to the wet butter mixture and then stir well to combine.
Proceed to roll your cookie dough into 1-inch-sized balls and place them evenly spaced on your lined baking sheets.
After that, press a single teddy graham cookie into the center of each cookie.
Place the cookies into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes, until the edges look set.
Then, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
Are honey cookies healthy?
These cookies actually are a little healthier than your usual sugar cookies because honey is a natural sugar. The teddy-shaped cookies on top are not healthy but they are not that unhealthy either, and since there is only one on every cookie it’s not that bad.
How long are honey butter cookies good for?
These cookies can be kept stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or they can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. This should give you plenty of time to use them up before they go bad.
How to Make Better cookies
Spend a little extra time when you mix the butter and sugars. Creaming them together for 2-3 minutes will improve the consistency of your cookies.
Preheat the oven. This will help your cookies turn out right every time!
Use a cookie scoop! If you want all your cookies to be perfectly shaped and have them all be the same size, a cookie scoop is the way to go.
Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Doing this will make it really easy to remove the cookies from your cookie sheet so that you don’t have to scrape them off the pan – they will just slide right off in perfect shape!
Make sure not to overbake your cookies. They may not even look totally done on the tops, but if the bottoms start to brown, I take mine out and they are perfect!
Every once in awhile I take my good camera out to the fields or courts or gymnastics arena and take some action shots of my kids playing sports. It’s challenging, but really fun! Here’s a shot I got from a 7-on-7 football tournament my son played in. Hair flying, muscles tensed & look of concentration on his face- I love it all!
