Honey spice cookies
This cookie recipe is delicious and right in with the flavors of the season! With the clove and allspice, this cookie is reminiscent from fall through the Christmas season. For those who are keeping sugars down (we all should be), I used a combination of turbinado sugar (sugar that is less refined and still contains some molasses) and monk fruit in the raw. Using the less processed version of sugar is better for the flavor and our health! Enjoy!
