Jane's Best Ever Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by WaCookinFool

This recipe came from my mother, Jane Hand, when I asked her for her best recipes so that I could save them for my daughters. Not being a PB cookie lover, I set this aside until needing a sweet for work. My co-workers raved about it. I had lost the recipe until today so now that I have found it, I figured I had better post it for posterity. Enjoy! A recent reviewer thought the temp was too high so I have adjusted. New temp and time is listed.

I made half of the recipe instead of the whole recipe. They seemed rather dry to me. I didn't have any trouble with the oven temp. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
