Blessed Imbolc

Imbolc has arrived!  To celebate the return of the Sun, here is a wonderful recipe:

Honey Bars

1 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup honey
1 cup sour milk* (see below)
2 Tablespoons vinegar
6 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon mace
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon


Prepare sour milk and mix dry ingredients. Set both aside.
Cream margarine and sugar, add egg, beat until light. Add honey, sour milk and vinegar.
Mix thoroughly. Chill one hour.
Roll out to 1/4" thickness. Cut into 2"x3" rectangles and place on buttered cookie sheets.
Bake at 375° for 6 minutes. Frost with plain vanilla frosting or sprinkle with icing sugar.

* For sour milk, add 1 T. vinegar to 1 c. milk and let stand for 10 minutes.


1 Thoughts:

  1. ooh, sounds great! I think I'll use round cookie cutters instead to symbolize the sun. This seems like a large many squares does it make?
