Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

There has been a lot of experimenting and failing in my kitchen lately in trying to find a recipe that uses honey instead of 1 1/2 cups of sugar for chocolate chip cookies. The first two attempts were not even noteworthy. There was a lot of runny, flatness mixed with melted chocolate. It was painful to see.
Today I tried these and I think we have a keeper. I was actually surprised that they weren't cakey and didn't flatten everywhere. Hooray!

Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C butter, softened
2/3 C honey
1/2 C dry powdered milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 C 100% whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 C chocolate chips- I used 65% cacao chips

Cream the butter, honey and dry milk. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. It will look a little curdled. Add the flour, soda and salt and mix again. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350* oven for 8-10 minutes.
