Peanut Butter Honey Cookies


Peanut butter cookies! This classic cookie is one of my all time favorites.

If you love peanut butter and honey here is a variation for you! It’s a fun twist on the original Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. I’ve substituted honey for the brown sugar and added some peanut butter chips for a little extra sweetness.

Whenever I want to get perfectly round cookies that are uniform in size, I always use a scoop. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, I would definitely recommend investing in one. I have several sizes of Norpro scoops. For smaller cookies, I recommend this one: Norpro Stainless Steel Scoop, 1 Tablespoon.
