Grandma's Honey Cookie Recipe

This is a large recipe. It makes about a hundred cookies! I usually half it.

2 cups honey
2 cups rogers syrup
2 cups brown sugar ( A little less is fine )
1 1\2 cups butter or margarine
3 eggs
1 1\2 cups cream
1 tablespoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1\2 teaspoons star anise ( This is optional )
13 cups flour

For the icing:
vanilla (a tiny bit)
icing sugar

Cream together butter, sugar, eggs, honey and syrup.
Add cream and sifted dry ingredients, but only put in 12 cups flour.
Add the last cup when batter is smooth.
Before you roll them out, it's best to chill the dough for about 30 minutes to an hour. Bake at 350 degrees for about ten minutes. Careful not to let them get dark!
To make the icing, put all the ingredients together and mix. Don't bother measuring! Be creative with the amounts!
