I spotted the recipe for these on The Salted Cookie and I have only tweaked it slightly. Honey and peanut butter and two of James’ favourite things, add cookies into the equation and we are onto a winner. I hadn’t baked any cookies for months and I was having withdrawals. I thought these would be great take-to-school(work) cookies after the lovely Christmas break. Something to brighten the mid-morning tea break.
My gosh were they dangerously tasty! I was glad James took them to work because after all the excesses of Christmas, the last thing I needed were these calling my name from the biscuit tin! I halved the original recipe and made about 12 cookies.
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway! A couple of days left.
