Thank you mliss29, for an awesome cookie recipe! I was looking through recipes using peanut butter when I found this one and it caught my eye. As it turns out, I was also needing a good cookie recipe to make for Halloween treats for our high school band. These fit the bill perfectly! They have great peanut butter flavor and the candy corn is not only delicious on top, but it looks so festive! They are super easy to mix up too. Also, thank you for the tip about using parchment or wax paper. I only had wax paper on hand so that's what I used and it made cleanup a snap! I will definitley be sharing this recipe and these delicious cookies with everyone!!
