Tres Dulces Cookies

Hubby wanted peanut butter cookies (of which I’m not typically a big fan). So… I spruced them up w/ honey and butterscotch chips.

Played around w/ a few versions to get a preferred consistency and these are gold!

TIPS: You can also chill the dough and then cut it like in my Smør Cookies (Danish Butter Cookies) recipe if you’re not ready to bake right after prepping dough!
