I'm playing with a cookie recipe to enter a local contest. It's a peanut butter cookie, which I'm supplementing with chopped honey roasted peanuts. I made a batch tonight cutting the white sugar from 3/4 c. to 1/2 c. and added 1/4 cup of honey. The cookies are pretty good, but I had to bake them an extra 4-5 minutes to get them brown and done.
Is this the proper ratio, or did I need to add more, or cut back on other ingredients? The finished product is both moist and crumbly. The poker crowd at the house liked them, but I don't think they're perfect yet--any thoughts?
