Absolutely perfect peanut butter cookies. I followed as written, but used smooth peanut butter as my kids don't like nuts as of yet!!! I also cut the recipe in half and it still made 3 dozen cookies. I used my cookie scoop to make things easier. Will definitely repeat this in the future. Made for 123 tag. Thanks Galley for sharing.
