Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by republic00

peanut butter cookies. I have been using this recipe for 40 years. I like it because I can make a triple batch and freeze for later "quick cookies". I roll the mix into balls, place the balls on a cookie sheet and put it in the freezer. When the balls are frozen I put in freezer bags with a dozen or two balls in each bag. Don't put unfrozen balls into a bag to freeze; they'll stick together. I also use a meat tenderizer (the tool) to mash the balls (faster than a fork).
