Preparation

In bowl, beat together peanut butter, honey, sugar and butter until light and fluffy; beat in eggs and vanilla.

In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt ; gradually stir into peanut butter mixture. (Batter can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 day.)

Drop by tablespoonfuls (15 mL), about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, onto greased rimless baking sheets; using tines of fork, gently flatten in crisscross pattern to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. (Can be frozen on baking sheets until firm, then transferred to freezer bags and frozen for up to 3 weeks. Do not thaw before baking; add 1 minute to baking time)

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 375°F (190°C) oven, switching pans halfway through, for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
