After trying to make this recipe a few times, I was finally satisfied with the final result of these cookies. They have a sweet and salty taste so they’re not overwhelmingly sweet.
With each bite, you will notice a vanilla and buttery flavor that will remind you of your favorite cornbread. Those cookies are then topped with a honey drizzle and a homemade honey frosting on top. Everything that should be on top of a regular cornbread slice is on these!
I would even say that this would be a great memorial day dessert recipe. They are easy to make, yet so impressive when you add the honey buttercream and the honey drizzle on top.
