Easy 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by kavanaugh

This recipe is from a 1999 Gourmet magazine that I've added to. It's a bit different than other PB cookie recipes here. These crispy and peanutty cookies never last long anywhere I've taken them.

Shockingly chewy! So delicious! I was out of Vanilla so I used a tablespoon of Vanilla Ice Cream. I made it with crunchy peanut butter. In and out of the kitchen in 15 minutes. Highly recommend.
