peanut butter cookies

I have a few favorite cookie recipes that I make over and over. This is one of them. It is from Cookin' with Home Storage by Vicki Tate. They are fairly healthy and not too sweet.

1 C softened butter
1 C freshly ground peanut butter
1 1/4 C honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda

Blend butter until smooth. Add peanut butter and blend again. Add honey and blend again. Add eggs 1 at a time and beat until mixed. Add vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Roll into balls and put onto ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork dipped in cold water and flatten with a criss-crossed design. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes on the top rack of the oven. Remove immediately. Cool and enjoy.

(I added some chocolate on the top before cooking)

You lost me at "fairly healthy"

I don't know what I would do if I didn't think I was funny.

Julia - you are funny, I once laughed so much at one of your posts that I spat muesli all over my iPad!

Kayce - The cookies look divine and as I am craving those peanut butter chocolates that you have in the States (can't remember what they are called!), I will have to make some today and hopefully they will sate the craving!

Kayce- They look yummy! Is the chocolate the spoonful of sugar for the whole wheat flour to go down?

My Mom made peanut butter cookies for us after school so I have fond memories. I bake brownies every Friday for my kids after school - the Ghiradelli dark chocolate mix, but I use olive oil as the vegetable oil. And two tablespoons of ground walnuts. Aiming for that "fairly healthy" mark!
