I have a question about the recipe "Buttery Lemony Lace Cookies" from Allison from Haute Box. What is a good substitute for light corn syrup? Can we use honey instead?

I never use corn syrup, no matter what calls for it, because I have an extreme sensitivity to it, hfcs or otherwise. I substitute Golden Syrup or Cane syrup for corn syrup. In amny cases, although honey has a similar viscosity, it's a completely different product and may not produce the desired result. I would go with Cane Syrup, which you can actually make yourself by cooking down sugar and water.
