1/1 Photo of Canadian Living Peanut Butter Cookies
This recipe is from the 1987 version of the Canadian Living Cookbook. It's the best peanut butter cookie recipe, imo, I always use this one. The original does not call for the M&Ms, but it's my favourite thing to add! If you are going to triple or more the recipe, add an extra egg, it helps keep them whole once baked. The original also calls for 1.5 cups all purpose flour, but I use half and half, and you cannot tell the difference! http://www.canadianliving.com/food/
