One of my favorite things when I was younger was going to Texas to visit my Grandparents. Both sets lived in Houston. I remember waking up to the smell of bacon, sausage, pancakes, fresh biscuits and everything else on the huge buffet my grandmother made each day. Later in the day the smell of cookies would fill the air. She always made enough to feed 20 even though there were only 7 of us there.
Every time I make cookies it takes me back to my childhood. Walking down the stairs and into the kitchen, or running in from outside to watch her make cookies. I will be sharing some of my favorite goodies she made in the coming weeks.
This is my adaptation to my MeMe's Peanut butter cookies:
4 Tbsp butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp creamy honey
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Cream the butter, sugar and honey.
Add the egg and mix well.
Add flour and baking soda.
Finally add the peanut butter.
Use a spoon to scoop out the dough and make balls and lay on ungreased cookie sheet. Take a fork and flatten the balls in a criss cross pattern.
Bake at 200 C or 350 F for about 10 min. until golden brown.
