Peanut Butter Pie Cookies

After serving hubby Thanksgiving dinner this weekend (he was craving some Chicken and dressing with all the trimmings!)  I decided he needed something a little healthy.

So I made him a batch of these……

What couldn’t be healthy about peanut butter and honey? After finding this recipe floating around on Pinterest I knew I had to make these for him.   These were really good, soft and chewy and since there is no flour involved in this cookie it is good for those who are keeping their gluten intolerance in check.

Try a batch soon.  You will like them as much as we did.

Peanut Butter Pie Cookies

1 cup peanut butter

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup honey

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients together with a mixer.  The “dough” will seem very “soft”, somewhere between a batter and a dough. This is how it should be.

Drop with a cookie scoop (a 2 tsp works great) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Place cookies 2 inches apart (they will spread!).

Bake for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown.  Allow the cookies to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

 

Hope you enjoy these!
