Honey-Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the cookies to make if you like sweet things. They are just a bit too sweet for me but everyone else seemed to enjoy them. They came from Taste of Home, submitted by Lucile Proctor. The main change I made in them is to add chocolate chips. Nothing like a bit of chocolate to put temptation in your way.

Honey-Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 C shortening
1 C creamy peanut butter
1 C honey
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 C flour
1 C sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Chocolate chips, (optional)

In a mixing bowl, combine shortening, peanut butter and honey. Add eggs and mix well. Combine dry ingredients and add to peanut butter mixture, mixing well. Roll into 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten with a fork dipped in flour. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen.
