I was making peanut butter cookies and decided on a whim to change up my regular recipe. My hubby loved these. Hope you do too :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What happens when a snickerdoodle recipe meets a peanut butter cookie? You get these scrumptious cookies. They're a crispy, peanut buttery cookie with a hint of cinnamon. Easy to prepare, let your kids help roll out the dough and roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mix. So good!
