Peanut Butter Cookies

Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

From the look of my Facebook post last week, it seems you hated my Marshmallow & Peanut Butter Cookie Cobbler Recipe. As I mentioned, I make full batches of cookie dough, but usually freeze at least half of it for cobblers, “just one cookie” moments & when the girls’ school requests them last minute. I consider Chris a cookie connoisseur. If there is a cookie in sight, he’ll test it. He can’t resist my peanut butter cookies! They’re the perfect combination of sweet & salty, chewy & crunchy.
