3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 cup honey
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

In a mixer, beat eggs, sugar, oil and honey for seven minutes. Gradually add the sifted flour and the baking soda. Let it rest in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Smear a little bit of flour onto your hands and shape the dough into balls. Flatten the balls a little bit and put them in the oven to bake for 15 minutes on a greased and floured pan.

honey boiled pastries....
Has anyone ever heard of a Jewish pastry called something like Pierska? My mother in law told me it was a three sided cookie filled with raisens and nuts (sounds like hamantasha to me) BUT it was boiled in honey...perhaps baked first? She sometimes calls it something like Persckes too...This was made for her by her grand mother and they are ashkenazic jews......and she is 90 years old...I would be thrilled to be even give her the name of this treat....thank you so much....

honey cookies
My mixture came out like a batter, so I had to spoon it onto a baking tray. The cookies did not come out like a biscuit, but more like a fatless sponge cake which was a little disappointing. Maybe if I had rested the mixture longer in the fridge they may have been different, but I am not so sure.

During the Jewish New Year we eat honey and apples as a symbol of sweetness, in the hope of being blessed with sweet new year.

Honey Cookies
I found baking these as the recipe calls for to be more like a bread than a cookie. However, I tried not beating so long, refridgerating the dough, and only baking for 5 minutes and they are a little more like a cookie.
