"Very delicious cookies. Easy to make. These will stay soft in an air-tight container. For special occasions, press five peanut halves into the top."

Ok, I am angry. I wanted desert. It was cold outside. I didn't want to go out so I made something. This. And it was good. Now I know that I can bake, I am going to get fat. Seriously - really good cookies and I don't even like peanut butter. It was just the only thing in the house that could be turned into a cookie (my husband likes it). PS: I didn't roll them in sugar - I ran out, but I did sprinkle a little confectioner's sugar on top once they were done. Pretty.


this is THE pb cookie recipe for me ... i love it! it tastes just the way a peanut butter cookie should :) if you want them to stay soft, freeze or refrigerate your dough before baking (and i mean, once they're on the sheets, not before shaping them. just pop them into the freezer for about 5 minutes and then into the oven to bake.) they stay really soft that way (as long as you don't overbake!) if you like 'em crispy (like i do!), don't do that step. anyway, great cookies! last time i put reese's pieces and it added a nice chocolate touch without being overpowering. also, it makes like 28-30 normal sized cookies (48 would be little bite-sized guys!) Enjoy!


I put rounded balls into medium muffin tins and baked for 8 to 10 minutes. The cookies looked and tasted even better ;) A definate crowd pleaser.
