Honey Cookies

My girlfriend made these really good cookies tonight. She said they were called honey cookies. They were the kind of cookies that you roll out and cut into shapes. We only have one cookie cutter in our apartment so all of the cookies were shaped like an apple. They reminded me of some cookies that my mom's friend made when I was pretty young. Sometimes she would come over and I would make the cookies with her. My mom's friend had these alphabet shaped cookie cutters that she used to make the cookies. Either that or maybe my mom had the alphabet shaped cookie cutters and my mom's friend just used them when she came over. My girlfriend made her cookies with honey and brown sugar, but I'm pretty sure that my mom's friend used molasses and normal sugar. The main similarities are that the cookies are both very crispy on the edge and a little chewy in the middle and also that they both have spices like cinnamon and nutmeg in them. The other similarity is that they both have a little flour left on the edge from when they were rolled out and cut up.
