This recipe makes the best Peanut Butter cookies ever. They are soft, sweet and just so good. Bonus: they’re super easy to make!
My little sister is allergic to nuts, so we didn’t keep peanut butter around at our house growing up. I had peanut butter cookies at friends houses or parties occasionally, but really never thought they were that good. Then, one fateful day, I found this recipe. When my family was in town the other weekend we had a whole bunch of people who “didn’t like peanut butter cookies” devour 56 of them in a few short hours. My thighs wish that was an exaggeration. Make these at your own peril!
