I'm fairly shocked at all of the positive reviews here. I'm a seasoned home baker. There is entirely too much flour in this recipe as that is what this cookie predominantly tastes like. I should have trusted my instincts and halved the flour. Shameful waste of good ingredients.

I was so disappointed with the flavor. I realize they're called HONEY-Peanut Butter, but even hubby asked they had any peanut butter in them (and that after I added extra peanut butter like some of the reviewers suggested.

I was hesitant to double the peanut butter as other reviewers recommended, so I added just an extra 1/2 cup. Even then, the honey taste dominates the flavor of these cookies. If you want the peanut butter taste to come through, then either double the peanut butter or reduce the honey. If I make them again, I will likely reduce the honey to just 1/4 cup. I used butter in place of shortening. They are chewy cookies & bake up nicely.

Took some advice and doubled the peanut butter - it was perfect! I think if you didn't double it, it wouldn't have much peanut butter taste. They are so good and a bit chewy too!

LOVE!!standing in my kitchen and just made these!TIP: after seeing others comments about "too much flour" and "not enough pb taste", i honestly DOUBLED the amount of peanut butter for this recipe, and by far THE BEST decision! ive been trying recipe after recipe for pb cookies, and although they were always good they never had enough pb flavor to satisfy. im sure any one else can agree!so however you decide to make this recipe, if its by cutting it in half or following the full measurements (i did half because.. honey is expensive lol and im a poor college student),i strongly, strongly suggest to double the peanut butter. and nothing else needs to change! you will not be disappointed :)ps- i melted butter instead of the shortening for mine.. they are very very soft cookies!being both weak for nut butters and honey, this recipe shot a double arrow through the heart!

Instead of the Honey, I used Pure Cane Syrup. An added taste that many asked what I had added to make them taste this good.

Easy and just the right taste. The honey makes these cookies moist and mellow

Wonderful!!!! Can't eat just one. Cut the recipe in half, used my cookie scoop to make even portions and ended up with 4 dozen cookies.
