Beeline Honey Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine the first
Cube chilled butter. Add butter cubes in the food processor
and pulse until it resembles coarse meal.
Add honey to the mixture and pulse.
Slowly add cold water 1 Tablespoon at a time until to the
mixture and pulse until the dough comes together.
Divide dough in half. Lightly dust the counter with flour. Pat
the dough or use a floured rolling pin to flatten the dough to
about 1/4 inch thick. (Not too thin!)
Using cookie cutters, cut out crackers. We love to use festive
shapes for holidays!
Place cookies on a parchment lined sheet pan. Repeat with
the second batch of dough.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookie.
You don’t want them to brown. Let them cool. Ice and serve!
We LOVE rainbow sauce at Beeline! Not only is it tasty, it has 2-3 cups of veggies per serving! This recipe is very versatile and one you can alter based on what’s in season and/ or what you have in your veggie box at home. It’s not just a pasta sauce, we put it on pizza, dip chicken tenders in it, serve it as soup, and even poach eggs in it to serve over toast for a delicious breakfast.
1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 cup butternut squash, diced
3 carrots, peeled and rough chop
1 large beet, peeled and diced
1 cup kale, stems removed and chopped
2 28oz. can Organic Muir Glen Crushed Tomatoes with Basil
pinch dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
- Heat a large saucepan (big enough to hold all the ingredients) over medium heat. Add olive oil to the pan, and sauté onion until translucent, about 3 minutes.
- Add all of your chopped veggies.Sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft and starting to brown.
- Add tomatoes, dried oregano, a pinch of sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until all of the veggies are soft.
- Take the pan off the heat and let the sauce cool slightly before pureeing it with an immersion blender or blender, until smooth (or use a blender in batches, but make sure the lid is secure).
Makes 6-8 cups. This recipe can be kept in the fridge for a five days or can be frozen in small batches.
