Measure the rest of the ingredients and mix into the honey sugar mixture. Refrigerate for 3 days. Divide dough into thirds. With floured hands, press onto greased cookie sheet to 1/4" thick. Press to whithin 1" of edge of sheet. Bake on middle rack of preheated 350! oven for 20-22 minutes or until edges begin to brown and center springs back from light tough. Upon removing, invert onto a cutting board, and cut in 1" x 2" strips. Drizzle glaze over cookies. For glaze, I combine 2 c powdered sugar with enough milk to make it of drizzling consistency (about 4-6 T) and a dash of lemon, orange or almond extract, or all three if I'm in the mood for flavor!
