Peanut Butter Cookies

Delicate. This is the word that best describes these yummy cookies. Here I share a simple recipe that is sure to satisfy the most discerning of palates! The original recipe I got from here, but I tweaked it to make the cookies a bit more healthful.

-2 cups all purpose flour
-1 cup rolled oats
-1 tspn baking powder
-1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
-1 cup creamy peanut butter
-1 Tblspn honey
-2 tspns vanilla extract
-1 cup brown sugar
-1 cup white, granulated sugar
-2 eggs

What to do?

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Mix flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat butter, peanut butter and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Beat in both sugars. Scrape down sides of bowl. Stir half of dry ingredients into mixture. Add eggs 1 at a time, stirring well after each addition. Mix in remaining dry ingredients.  

For each cookie, roll 1 heaping tablespoonful of dough into 1 3/4-inch-diameter ball. Arrange dough balls 2 1/2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. 
Bake cookies until dry on top and golden brown on bottom, about 14 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes. Using metal spatula, transfer cookies to racks and cool completely. (Can be prepared up to 3 days ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.)
