Let me be the first to raise my right hand, and left hand! Yes, I love peanut butter, so does my little bundle of joy (not little anymore) and his dad. Sometimes we fight over the last of the peanut butter left in the jar to lick with our fingers!
So, these peanut butter cookies. These melt in your mouth, so soft and chewy peanut butter cookies are my go to snacks whenever I need to make something in a jiffy. I know, I know, you have to chill them in the refrigerator for sometime, but, hey, I can wait for that long to munch on my fave snack.
I am so glad to report that these no fail cookies are extremely easy to make. No fancy shmancy ingredients that you have to run to the store to pick in a rush.
I do feel like my health freak nerve gets activated sometimes while baking, and I add wheatgerm and ground flax seeds to a batch sometimes. Not always though! But you can never ever tell that you have added these optional ingredients, so you can do that also and not tell anyone (our little secret).
