Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies!

Melissa Turner


Who doesn't love a nice soft, chewy peanut butter cookie. I used my Grandmother's recipe for years but they were always dry and not chewy at all. So I started researching and reading other recipes and this is what I came up with. Just as good if not better than bakery peanut butter cookies.
