My family won't let too much time pass, before they beg me to make these delicious peanut butter cookies that melt in your mouth. They don't have the normal fork crossing on the top...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie. Super yummy! Note: I've made this with chunky style peanut butter, too. And it's just as good or better.
