Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies 5 5 1 1
THE BEST pb cookie recipe! I always receive compliments when I bring these to parties. I have tried many recipes for basic peanut butter cookies. This one is easy and the most delish. The ingredients make this cookie so good. The only substitution I would recommend is butter flavored shortening. I only use whole or 2% milk when baking. Skim affects dough texture. Also use real vanilla extract instead of imitation. It makes a difference. Follow the instructions exactly, do not over bake, and you will be happy with the results. 04/13/2012
