Best Peanut Butter Cookies in the Whole World!
“How come you never make these peanut butter cookies?” asks my husband.
“Because they are TOO GOOD!”
That doesn’t make sense.
Yes, it does.
They are so good, once they come out of the oven and are melt-in-your-mouth warm, you cannot help eating a whole stack of them with a glass of milk.
I’m drooling now writing this.
They are that good. They are also good cold. They are good at midnight, and they are good for breakfast.
That’s why I don’t make them very often.
Besides, they are made with peanut butter, so the kids can’t take them to school, which means there are even more at home.
I make them on a weekend, March break, in the summer, or at Christmas. If I have to.
I have no idea where the recipe came from. I think it came from a flyer in the mail one, time.
Enjoy. And I double-dog-dare you to try to eat just one!
