"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Whip honey and eggs until it changes color. Add in flour and work in the dough. Make a loaf and place on greased cookie sheet. Place on low shelf and bake at 325 for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Turn cookies over in pan and bake for 15 more minutes. Make sure the bottom is golden brown. Slice and enjoy.
This is a wedding tradition in Italy, given to the bride and groom for a gift in the old country when money was sparce.
Note from Lorraine: Aunt Josie and Aunt Francis often brought these over to our house when they visited, as well as Aunt Rose Costanza. Mom said to leave in a bread bag with a slice of bread to keep them soft. They are great for dunking in coffee.
