Can't go wrong with a classic peanut butter cookie made soft and chewy for the prefect peanut butter treat.

Peanut Butter Cookies

I have a slight obsession with peanut butter.

I eat it just about everyday and add it to just about everything: my morning shake, toast, apples, a sandwich, etc.

But there is just something about a classic peanut butter cookie that makes everything in the world ok.

I mean, who can really resist a good peanut butter cookie.. unless of course, your allergic to peanuts. In that case, I feel terrible for you.

Peanut butter cookies are one of my all time favorite cookie and there is nothing better than a warm one fresh out of the oven.

Sprinkled with a little sugar as they are cooling… mmmm. It’s making my mouth water just writing this and making me want to whip up another batch. I have all the ingredients in the pantry because this is such a simple, yet classic, cookie to make.
