Number 48: Swedish honey cookies

Boyfriend and I love honey, so I wanted to try these cookies. That, and I had 2 eggs and 1.25 cups of butter in my fridge, a week to use it all and a dislike for chocolate cookies. It's almost spring break, so we have to defrost our fridge.

Anyway these are almost graham cracker-like because they're more sturdy than cookies, but not crispy. The honey taste is slight and the cookie isn't overpowering. It's a bit dainty, actually.

Also, if you've noticed, I'm coming up to the 50th recipe on here. Suggestions for number 50 are welcome!
