Quick Peanut Butter Cookies


"I had to make cookies at the last minute for a school function and a friend gave me this quick and easy recipe. From start to finish, this only takes about 30-45 minutes and the taste is like you spent hours in the kitchen. You might want to make a double batch, because they will be gone before you know it. ENJOY!!"

I used the exact ingredients cited in the recipe. I chilled the dough for about an hour, making it easy to roll into balls. I rolled the dough into 1" balls and then flattened each with criss-c...
