    The simple combination of savory but sweet peanut butter incoporated into a smooth, buttery dough gives this cookie its signature nutty flavor

      Yup, these are definitely classic peanut butter cookies! BUT they are better than the fork-smooshed, rich kind. I made a half batch and it turned out great. Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks Nurse_Corie! :)

      I have this recipe in a magazine and it is soo good. I bake them for 9 minutes because I like them softer :) I have made these with regular PB, but now I use natural chunky PB.
