It is summer - I have more time to look for new recipes and get feedback from my family. I saw this "Honey Roasted Peanut Crisps" cookie recipe in a Southern Living cookbook. My family wasn't overly impressed..... but that is because they like soft, chewy chocolate chip type cookies.
I actually think these cookies have a great flavor. I did add chocolate chips to the last half of the dough and I liked them better... but I like chocolate. My hubby really liked them but he doesn't like chocolate as much as the rest of us.
If you like a "pecan sandie" type of cookie, give these a try!
Honey Roasted Peanut Sandies (adapted from Southern Living)
1 cup butter, softened or 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening - I did all butter!
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups honey-roasted peanuts
Beat butter at medium speed with mixer until creamy - gradually add brown sugar, beating well. Add egg and vanilla, beating well. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt, gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in peanuts. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet - or lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Dip a flat-bottomed glass in sugar and flatten each ball to 1/4 inch thickness Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes or until edges or golden. Cool slightly on pan and move to wire racks to cool. Makes about 4 dozen.
