I found a version of this recipe in an old Southern Living Cookbook. I did make a few adjustments that I thought would elevate the flavors. I used extra peanut butter, added Vanilla Bean Paste instead of extract, & increased the baking powder. These cookies are soft & chewy & are a drop cookie, so it doesn't take long to make or bake, just 12 minutes or less depending on your oven. I even added a few colorful sprinkles on top of some of the cookies, for added color & eye appeal. These cookies are so tasty, & makes about 5 dozen depending on the size spoon you use. I shared with my neighbor.
