Store-bought shortbread cookies are given a bit of pizzaz when they're dipped into a honey-lemon syrup and sprinkled with chopped pistachios. Serve Honey-Dipped Cookies when you need an easy and impressive cookie.Enjoy these cookies the morning after the party. Honey is loaded with fructose, which speeds up the metabolism of alcohol and can help even the worst of hangovers.
