I have a cookie monster that lives in my house. Not a cute little one, but a full grown man. You bake a batch of cookies and they are gone before you know it. I don’t make them often because of Mr. Cookie Monster and the other fact that we don’t need that extra sugar around staring at us. But when I do make him some cookies, there is only one choice, Peanut Butter Honey Cookies.
What a classic cookie to make and with a twist of using the new honey peanut butter. It just adds that extra bit of sweetness to them.
I recently was given a baking pad to try out called the BakeitFun Baking Mat. I had never used a baking mat before and after making this batch of cookies, I don’t’ understand why I haven’t. I have to admit, I’m not the best cookie maker and it seemed the bottoms of my cookies would burn. I even bought a new cookies sheet, but still the same problem. Not anymore!!
It fits perfectly in my pan and I love that I know exactly where to put the cookies on this mat. Now my cookies are all the same size and don’t blend into one big cookie because I put too much dough for each. Since this is a silicon mat, it’s so easy to clean and the cookies just slide right off. No more having to spray the cookie sheet and no more sticking to the pan.
Most importantly, check out the bottom of the cookies. They are so pretty and not burned. Such an even bake too. I’ve had quite a few cookies come out that are cooked in spots.
One thing I did have to do is take a minute off of my cooking time and the cookies were perfectly cooked for my oven. And I took a lot of minutes off in the kitchen because no more scrubbing the cookie sheet and the mat is dishwasher safe.
And most importantly, Mr. Cookie Monster loved the cookies.
Its that time of the year where you will be cooking lots of cookies for the holidays, so check out the BakeitFun Baking Mat and make all that baking time easier on yourself.
