Crunchy Munchy Honey Cakes (okay, they're really cookies).....a song, a book and a few recipes



Honey Cookies is a cute book about a boy named Ben whose grandmother teaches him to make his favorite honey biscuits. He also discovers where all the ingredients in the recipe come from. The book includes a simple recipe at the end.
