I didn't like them at all. They tasted like honey, and only honey. I couldn't even taste the peanutbutter. I didn't like the texture of the oats either. Other people liked them though, this is just my opinion. I think you need to like honey a lot to appreciate these cookies.
I really liked these cookies and they were so quick to make. I omitted the topping, increased the honey to 3/4 cup instead of using the sugar and had to add a little extra flour. They turned out great!
I'm one of those people that could eat a whole jar of Skippy's Honey Peanutbutter in one sitting, so this cookie was perfect for me. Even my un-American kids, who abhor peanutbutter (more for me) enjoyed these cookies. The topping may be optional, but don't leave it out. Dornette #4 helped me make these cookies, and her favorite part was dipping the cookies into the topping. Actually, her favorite part was dipping her fingers into the topping... Good one, Rick!
