Peanut Butter Cookies

This morning I baked a batch of peanut butter cookies. The cookies are lovely, chewy-inside and crunchy-outside. The whole process is very simple and takes less than an hour. This time, I use Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter. Next time, I will give myself a little challenge by making my own homemade peanut butter :D

My dear nephew W loves the cookies and is asking for more! With their great sweet and salty combo, it's no surprise that they will be one of family's favorites :)
