Flourless Peanut Butter & Honey Cookies

Here is a classic cookie, simple and wheat-free. As usual I have adjusted the original recipe, by replacing the sugar with honey, and a lot less of it than originally called for. As usual, it's still plenty sweet in my opinion. 

These are rich and filling, and not inexpensive to make, it must be said. Still, they are really delicious and worth making on occasion.  The peanut butter should, of course, be the kind that consists of peanuts.

45 minutes - 20 minutes prep time
28 - 30 cookies

2 cups peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. 

Mix the peanut butter and honey in a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle over the baking soda and break in the egg, and mix again until everything is well incorporated.

Scoop the mixture out by tablespoons, spacing them fairly widely. You will likely need to bake the cookies in two batches. Bake each batch for 13 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges. Let cool on the tray for 10 minutes before removing to finish cooling.

Last year at this time I made Beets with Yogurt & Garlic
