Honey Cookies

From: Daniel Peck’s Great-Grandma Miller (we joke that it is “an old family recipe”… just not our family!)

1 ½ cup canola oil (or similar)
2 cups sugar
½ cup honey
2 large eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla
4 ½ cup flour
4 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Salt (I leave this out)
2 tsp. Cinnamon

Combine oil, sugar, honey, eggs and vanilla and beat well. I use the same 1/2 cup measuring cup for the oil and honey, using it for the oil first and then the honey.  That way the honey doesn't stick to the cup.  Gradually beat in dry ingredients. Form into walnut sized balls and roll in sugar. Bake for 7-9 minutes at 350 degrees.  Do not overbake unless you want them to be a little crunchy.  Take the cookie sheets out of the oven when they look like the cookies are not quite done and let them "rest" on the cookie sheet for a while longer.  These can be frozen.  Makes around 90 cookies.
