~ Addictive Peanut Butter Cookies ~ Chewy Good!

Cassie *


Such an easy recipe and lots of cookies for your cookie jar. My kiddos love these with a big glass of milk. Great to add to your Christmas cookie trays!

I particularly love these cookies as they're not greasy, like some cookies I've tried. Loved by all!
They're not a hard cookie, just enough chew for my taste! A real winner!!!
