Below is a blog post was written about eleven years ago when Caleb was a baby.
I am resharing this post and the cookie recipe.
Blast From the Past
Over the weekend, Stephanie, Josh, and baby Caleb came for a visit. It was wonderful!
When they left to visit Josh’s family, I had a choice. I could take a nap which sounded inviting, or I could do something constructive. After a mental debate, I decided to make cookies, so they would have a treat when they returned home. I pulled out my recipe binder and came across an oldie but goodie…Honey Peanut Butter Cookies from Taste of Home Magazine.
Honey Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes about 5 dozen yummy cookies
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup honey
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- mix together shortening, peanut butter, and honey
- add eggs to peanut butter mixture and mix well
- Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt
- Add the flour and the peanut butter mixture, mix well
- Roll batter in to 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and place on uncreased cookie sheet
- flatten with a fork dipped in flour
- Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes
I gathered my ingredients.
A 9.5 on my cooking scale.Yum:-)
I preheated my oven to 350 degrees F.
I mixed the shortening, peanut butter, and honey with my mixer. Then I added the eggs and mixed them well. Then I combined the dry ingredients in a different bowl and whisked them together. After that, I added the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mixed them well.
I rolled the mixture into 1-1 1/2 inch balls and placed them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Then I flattened the cookies with a fork dusted with flour.
Then bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes.
Can’t beat cookies and milk…
I was glad I decided to do something constructive rather than a nap.
Although taking a nap is a beautiful thing.
Everyone enjoyed the cookies.
I even gave Brodie a taste…He loved them:-)
Happy Eating, Everyone!
