I love honey roasted peanut butter and peanut butter cookies so I decided to combine the two using my all time favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. These are certain to be a big hit at your next bake sale they freeze well if they make it that far.

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
kosher salt
1 c
salted butter, softened
1 c
packed dark brown sugar
1 c
granulated sugar
1 c
honey roasted peanut butter
2 large
eggs
1 1/2 c
honey roasted peanuts, pulsed in blender or food processor to resemble bread crums, about 14 pulses

Directions

1
Adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower middle postions and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2
Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in medium bowl and set aside.
3
Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add peanut butter and mix until fully combined, about 30 seconds; add eggs one at a time, and vanilla and mix until combined, about 30 seconds. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients; mix until combined, about 30 seconds. Mix in ground peanuts just until combined. Give a final stir to ensure that no flour pockets remain and ingredients are evenly distributed.
4
Working with 2 tablespoons of dough at a time, roll into balls and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Press each dough ball twice, at right angles, with dinner fork dipped in cold water to make crisscross design.
5
Bake until cookies are puffy and slightly brown around edges, but not the top, about 10-12 minutes (cookies will not look fully baked), switching and roating baking sheets halfway throu baking. Let cookies sit on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transfering cookies to wire rack and let cool to room temperature.
