Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies

World's easiest cookies. And, they're phenomenal! As you can tell, I love cooking with pecans. But the great thing about cooking is if you don't like pecans, then you don't have to use pecans. Experiment! Add in almonds or macadamia nuts. Try raisins or any other type of dried fruit. Or bake them plain. You're call; they're your cookies.


1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup pecan halves, crushed (optional)


Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Beat the peanut butter and egg together. Add in the honey and mix thoroughly. Mix in the baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Stir in crushed pecans. Spoon batter onto a greased cookie sheet, and bake for 20 min. Let cool and enjoy.


 *I prefer to use parchment paper over greasing. The cookies don't burn on the bottom and they come off more quickly. Cook time will shorten if you don't use parchment paper because the bottom will cook faster.
*This recipe makes about 16-18 cookies. If you're only getting 10-12 cookies out, you might be making the cookies too big, and should extend the cooking time accordingly. But hey, if you like big cookies, go for it!
