I got a huge craving for peanut butter cookies yesterday and went on the hunt for a recipe. I ended up with a Betty Crocker recipe and these are melt in your mouth GOOD! The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of shortening and 1/4 cup of butter, but I used all butter. These are super easy to make, I didn't even need my mixer! The flavor of peanut butter is just right in these cookies, they are light and just slightly crispy on the outer edges. YUM!!!
