peanut butter & honey cookies

a recipe by

We decided to try and get healthier, so I went shopping and bought Kraft All Natural Peanut Butter & Honey Peanut Butter. Well I tried to put it on a sandwich and WOW it was very pea-nutty lol. Way to strong for me on a sandwich (kinda like a handful of peanuts on bread) My son says to me "mum, it would make some pretty sweet peanut butter cookies" so that is exactly what I decided to do!

    Using a cookie dough scoop make 1 inch balls. Roll into white granulated sugar. Using a fork, press down each ball of dough to slightly flatten creating a criss-cross. Bake for 8-9 minutes depending on your oven. Don't over-bake. Make sure the bottom of the cookie is nicely browned. Let cool for a few minutes then transfer onto cooling rack.

    After I made these AMAZING soft and pea-nutty cookies with just a hint of honey. I was talking to my step son as he was eating some not even cooled cookies ( they don't even last 1 day in our house). We were joking around talking about adding banana's on top so it would taste like my favourite PB Honey and Banana sandwiches. I had enough mix to make one more dozen cookies. I took a frozen banana out of the freezer ( we save for smoothies when they get to dark to eat fresh) put a slice of banana on each cookie and then baked for 9 minutes (I cooked 1 extra minute in my oven because of the banana)
