  • 1 (16 oz) can honey roasted peanuts (or 1 cup peanut butter)
  •  1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  •  1 cup sugar
  •  1 cup brown sugar, packed
  •  2 eggs
  •  1 whole tablespoon vanilla
  •  2 1/2 cups flour
  •  1 tsp baking soda
  •  1 tsp baking powder
  •  1/2 tsp salt
  •  1/3 cup sugar + a dash of cinnamon for rolling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add the peanuts to a food processor and process for 4 minutes without stopping until smooth. Add salt to taste if desired.
  2. Beat butter, sugars, and 1 cup of homemade peanut butter on medium-high speed for 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt then add to wet ingredients and mix on low speed until just combined.
