Last Minute Peanut Butter Cookies

Keith has been craving sweets every single night lately. Tonight I decided to scour our cupboards to see if we had enough random ingredients to make cookies. Luckily, we did! I got this recipe from Better Homes & Gardens and modified it a bit to suit what we had in the house.

Ingredients

* 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (we only had baking powder)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (we only had extra crunchy)
* 1/4 cup honey
* 1 tablespoon milk

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
2. Cut in the butter and the 1/2 cup peanut butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
3. Beat in honey and milk until well combined.
4. Pat 1 tablespoon of the dough into a 1.5 inch circle. Please on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.
(Makes 24 cookies.)

These were delicious! Simple, but sweet, and they certainly hit the spot!

Yum! I like that this recipe includes honey... because I have the warehouse sized honey in my pantry and always welcome recipes using it! :)
