They were just ok. A little boring and the honey overpowered the peanut butter. Update: If you let them sit for a day the honey mellows out yet they stay really soft. They are actually quite good. Read More

I usually share my cookies with my neighbors and they were not thrilled at all with this recipe-the cookies tasted very bland. The dough tasted very good but after being baked they didn't taste like the dough. Read More

I usually don't bake anything at my house because we usually don't eat a lot of sweets. They just go bad. But I made these cookies and the next day they were gone! I was really surprised. Read More

The dough tasted good but when I cooked them they had absolutely no flavor. The recipe I used to use didn't call for honey...this may be the problem. I wouldn't suggest trying this recipe. Read More

Note to myself: read reviews before trying something new... I did not care for this at all. Nothing like traditional peanut butter cookies! I thought it was going to be good because of the honey... but it isn't at all. Read More

These didn't seem to taste very peanut buttery but were good. The dough had a great consistency to it it was great for rolling out and cutting shapes out. The girlfriend o meter tells me more peanut butter would be required on a future attempt with these but otherwise they were good. Read More
