A healthier version of peanut butter cookies. These taste great because they are made with honey.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Unwrap the roll of dough, and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Place half of the cookies onto unprepared baking sheets. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter onto the center of each cookie on the sheets, cover with the remaining cookie rounds, and seal edges tightly with a fork.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cookies from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

These were pretty good. My husband even liked them and he's generally against anything different. They reminded me of peanut butter and honey sandwiches a little but for me that's a good thing.:) Read More

I made them according to the recipe and refridgerated the dough overnight. I baked one tray of them half sandwitched with the peanut butter and the other half as 1/4" rounds. Both were awful. I would not bake this recipe again. Read More

I wouldn't make this recipe again unless I made some changes. We found it had too strong of a honey flavor and an unpleasant texture and appearance. I like the idea of using wheat flour and yogurt. Perhaps with some tweaking we will feel more satisfied. Read More

These didn't really ever seem "baked". I took them to school with me to share with my class and it took a while for people to warm up to them. But I did have a woman ask for the recipe as she's always looking for more healthy ways to make treats for her family. My husband and I couldn't eat too many as they were pretty rich. Read More

These were really strange cookies. After baking for 10 minutes they looked the same as when they went in. When done they were a bit dry. I used regular flour instead of pastry flour so that may have been the problem. Read More
