• 1 cup honey
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Apricot and Prune Butter*
*It is labeled as fruit butter. It is just jam that doesn't spread and melt in the oven.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the honey and shortening until smooth.
  3. Add in the eggs, one at a time.
  4. Then with the mixer on low speed, add in the dry ingredients and mix until the dough comes together. Do not mix too much or the cookies will be tough.
  5. Wrap the dough and chill for at least an hour.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll the dough out thin.
  7. Using a round drinking glass, or round cookie cutter (2½ to 3 inches in diameter), cut out the cookies.
  8. Using a spoon or pastry bag fitted with a plain tip, fill the cookies with the jam filling.
  9. Pinch 3 corners together and bake for 8-10 minutes until light brown.
  10. Allow to cool-the filling will be extremely hot! Enjoy!
