A co-worker of mine loves all salty foods. Chips and salsa and pretzels are her go-to snacks, and she doesn’t like fruit or sweets. I know! Hard to imagine, right?! :-) She is one of the nicest people I have been lucky to work with, always so kind and welcoming. So when her father passed away, we wanted to do something special for her and her family. We decided to all bring in homemade treats or put money towards additional store-bought meals. When I volunteered for dessert, I knew I wanted to make something she would enjoy too. With that thought, these salty-sweet cookies were created.
Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter (I used salted)
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup honey roasted, salted peanuts
Add peanut butter..
and the egg to a mixing bowl.
Place peanuts in food processer.
Process peanuts until ground into a fine consistency.
Add peanuts to mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
Form dough into patties and place on baking sheet.
Which do you prefer: Sweet or Salty?
What is your favorite way to combine them both?
