Oh my, these cookies are addicting! I ended up giving most of them away because I couldn’t stop eating them. My kids had a hard time keeping their hands off of them as well. I am in love with how soft they are even a few days after you bake them. Sometimes peanut butter cookies can be kind of dry, but these cookies are the complete opposite.
On top of tasting amazing, these cookies are so pretty and fluffy. They are a great cookie to take to the new neighbors or drop off to a friend.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
