Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Amanda Brecht


I love this recipe not only because the cookies are chewy and practically melt in your mouth after they've just come out of the oven, but also because of how quick they are. The cookies don't take any out-of-the-norm ingredients, and take 6 to 9 minutes to bake.
