Honey peanut butter cookies are recommended to leave for Santa.

This recipe had samples on a plate recommending them as a treat for Santa. They even appeared as if Santa had been there to sample but it was October so that just wasn't possible but I believed, just for that one moment when I saw the half-eaten cookie.

Making cookies is a wonderful tradition this time of year, especially to introduce little ones to cooking. Mommy and Me Cookbook has some wonderful simple cookie recipes.

Honey Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe is another recipe that was entered in the Missouri State Beekeepers Association fall 2017 cooking contest. The cookies looked so pretty with the bee imprint in the center, a very nice touch.
