Ok, let me start by saying, these are by far the BEST peanut butter cookies I have ever tasted in my life.  By a long shot.

The reason these cookies are better is because they use honey roasted peanuts rather than regular peanuts.

Also, I made homemade peanut butter, rather than store bought.  Homemade peanut butter sounds tricky, but it is the easiest thing in the world.

I’m so glad I didn’t shy away from trying the homemade peanut butter, because it really just takes a few minutes with a Vitamix or another food processor.

Here are the steps to these decadent cookies:
