Awesome Peanut Butter Cookies!

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Add in some tiny chocolate chips and/or chopped peanuts if desired, this recipe makes a lot of cookies but the dough can be shaped into small balls and then frozen to use later.

Oh my these are good. I used all margarine and did not press down with a fork. After 10 minutes in the oven these wonderful little gems were done to perfection. My family just loved these and since baking them less than 9 hours ago they are almost all done. A sure sign of a winner in my home. Thanks for the recipe.
