Honey Peanut Butter Cookies

I usually don't consider anything that is not chocolate to be a dessert...but these cookies quite the exception. They are simple and so tasty. Do I say that about every recipe? Alright then, let's get to the goodness.


Ingredients
½ cup shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup honey
2 eggs lightly beaten
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt

Directions
1) Preheat oven to 350°. In a mixing bowl, mix shortening, peanut butter, and honey.  Add eggs and mix well.



2) In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Remember, measuring flour correctly can make or break your recipe. Too little flour and your baked goods will fall apart, too much flour, and they'll be super dense. Spoon your flour into the measuring cup until it is overflowing. Then use the back side of a knife to scrape off the excess. Don't pack it into the measuring cup. If you really want to be safe, it's always a good idea to sift it first (but I only do that when the recipes specifically calls for it).



3) Combine the dry mixture with the peanut butter mixture and mix well.

4) Roll dough into 1½ inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheets, or use one of these handy little cookie scoops! Flatten cookies with a fork dipped in flour.


5) Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Who says watched cookies never bake? OK, I don't think anyone says that actually, but look at this fun time lapse, courtesy of my hubby. Yield: 5 dozen delicious cookies.
