I’ve always been a sucker for peanut butter cookies. So when the carrot cake cupcakes I attempted last week were a huge fail, I thought I’d make the classic cookie. Except these peanut butter cookies have honey in them! I figured the honey would be a delicious addition since I’ve always loved PB on toast with a little honey on top. I added a little Halloween festivity by sprinkling orange crystal sprinkles on them!
Recipe from Hungry Brownie
1 18 ounce jar of crunchy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. (I sprayed mine with Baker’s joy)
On a low speed, beat the peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and honey. Blend for a minute until mixed, then slowly add the flour and mix well.
Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix on low speed until just blended, about 25 seconds.
Scoop the dough (about 2 tablespoons) onto the baking sheets with 1 to 2 inches apart. Do not press down on the dough.
Bake one cookie sheet at a time for about 13-15 minutes or until slightly brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer for a cooling rack to completely cool.
Enjoy your cookies! Or, you can be like me and take them into work for everyone else to enjoy.
