Honeymoon BiscuitsHoneymoon Biscuits are crunchy and enriched with the goodness of honey. Honey, eggs and vanaspati are used as main ingredients while preparing this recipe.

If you use thin batter then you may get crunchy Honeymoon Cookies when baked, if you want soft then you can go with a bit more dough in the mold and bake at high temperature for some time and then lower the temperature after few minutes.

As the name suggests you can make use of moon shaped molds. If you like you can also use the heart shaped or any of your interest. I have used all purpose flour in preparing this recipe you can substitute it with whole grain wheat flour if you wish but you may not get this kind of texture.

As moisture in the air may make Honeymoon Biscuits soft, its a better idea to store in an air tight container once cookies are baked and cooled.
