Peanut Butter Cookies

In this house, we go through lots of peanut butter and peanut butter flavored foods.  Peanut butter is excellent to cook with because it usually requires little else for flavor.  The peanut butter itself is a delicious flavor, and it can certainly stand alone.  That's one of the things I love about these cookies - they're just so simple!  The other great thing about them - you can measure and mix up the dry ingredients, store them in a bag, and keep them in your pantry for "peanut-butter-cookies-in-a-hurry."

Please note:  In my humble opinion, these cookies are far better the day after.

  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
