Orange Blossom Honey Cookies

I've always been a big baseball fan.  It's a tradition in our family to bring a picnic to the ballpark, and two weekends ago when we were on hand to see the perfect game (!), we brought homemade cheese and roasted pepper sandwiches, jalapeno chips, and these homemade cookies.  My mom used to make them when we were younger but it had been ages since I last tasted the sweet honey and hint of orange blossom on my tongue.
You can make them small or big- I tend to like the smaller ones better- plus you have an excuse to eat more!  Recipe below.

Recipe for Orange Honey Cookies
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 table spoons orange juice
1 teaspoon orange blossom
2 tablespoons honey

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Place butter, flour, and baking powder in food processor.  Add in the liquid ingredients and mix/pulse.  The dough will be quite sticky (you don't need to add more flour) and wet from the juice but this is why they are so moist.  Place small spoonfuls on buttered baking sheet.  Make sure they are spaced apart at least 2 inches because they will expand!  Put tray in oven on top rack for 5-7 minutes or until golden.  (Again, be sure not to overcook them.  It is easy to think they are too soft or need more time in the oven but these cookies are best crumbly and moist.  Also, they will get crunchier the next day.)  Cool on wire rack.  Enjoy!
