(Jerry's favorite) Peanut Butter Cookies

Linda Stevens


Shortly after marrying my soul-mate in 1998 I discovered his favorite cookie was Peanut Butter!

Although he loves nuts, he does not like nuts in his peanut butter cookies! And they've got to be made with REAL butter!

This are a tad bit revised from Betty Crocker's original recipe and are doubled in quantity because they disappear so fast!

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! They are melt in your mouth delicious!
