Peanut Butter~Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Deneece Gursky Recipe

By Deneece Gursky Smokeygirlxo


Pictured here with Orange Cranberry Muffins, these peanut butter cookies are a taste above the norm. They don't last long in my house and are the most asked for cookies by family and friends. I often add a little pizzazz by topping with a hershey kiss while still warm or drizzling some chocolate over them when slightly cooled.

made the cookies last night and hubby loved them (he also shared one with the they think their treats are the cookie jar) easy to make...just one thing I took the first pan out of the oven and immediately started removing them from the pan and they fell apart on the rack. On the next pan I waited about 5 minutes before removing them and they held together. I also added a bag of chocolate chips --- yum.... Good job.

I made these yesterday. I nixed the roll in the sugar and the peanut butter chips and replaced them with dark chocolate chunks. Delish! They're already gone. I'll have to make more soon.
