Honey Peanut Butter Cookies

We have the majority of the boxes unpacked. So, the first cookies I decided to make were peanut butter cookies. This batch makes about two dozen cookies All the cookie were gone by the next day. I think the majority of the cookies were eaten by my daughter. These cookies were very popular. It could have been because I haven't baked for awhile but I have a feeling it was the recipe. These cookies are delicious. I did dip my fork into flour before attempting to make some crisscross patterns. I think sometimes my patterns are just a couple of crazy lines but I'm just glad no one judges my pattern top.
Honey Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/2  cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 tsp honey

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and the baking soda. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add the egg and mix until incorporated.
  6. Add the vanilla, peanut butter, and honey. Mix until incorporated.
  7. Slowly, add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
  8. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter onto the cookie sheet.
  9. Lightly flatten and firmly press a fork into the dough to make a crisscross pattern.
  10. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Rotate and continue baking for ten minutes or until lightly browned.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Did you already know.....................
-Crisscross is when a pattern is formed when lines cross over each other. 
-Scrabble was originally called crisscross words.
-It is unknown why peanut butter cookies have the crisscross patterns on the top but several theories are to help the cookies to cook evenly, to distinguish the cookies from others, for peanut allergies, or religious reasons.
