Brown Sugar Cookies

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

1¼ cups packed, light brown sugar
¼ cup water
3 tablespoons honey
1 egg
2⅓ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup coarsely ground pecans
2½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground allspice
how to prepare

In a large mixer bowl, combine the brown sugar, water, honey and egg.  Beat on high speed of an electric mixer until mixed, about 10 seconds, scraping bowl well.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, pecans, cinnamon, baking soda and allspice, mixing well.  Add to wet ingredients and stir until mixed thoroughly.

Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet, about 1½ inches apart.  Bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned on edges, about 12 minutes.  Remove from pan immediately with a spatula and cool on a wire rack (the cookies will be quite soft until cooled).  Store in an airtight container.  (If you live in a humid climate, store uncovered.)  These are best when allowed to sit a few hours.
