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.
