PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES


These  Peanut Butter Cookies are perfect dessert that can be prepared ahead of time and kept on hand for surprise guests.

Everyone's favorite cookies gets a double hit of peanut butter. Peanut butter is added to the dough and the balls of cookies are sprinkled with peanut before they are flattened.

Have used only 1/4 cup of brown sugar since I prefer a not so sweet cookies but add more if you want it sweeter.

You  can also omit the cherries by shaping the balls of dough then flatten them using a fork in a crisscross pattern.

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
Makes  20 cookies

1/4 cup butter/margarine
1/4-1/2 cup brown  sugar

Interesting. I have never seen PB cookies made this way. Will have to try these someday. I love PB cookies, but tend to not make them often. I wish I could just make one or two so the whole batch doesn't linger around! Thanks for linking at The Yuck Stops Here. Chrystal @ YUMeating.com

I love peanut butter, they are so great to chew into. I liked that you put a cherry on top, a great addition, it reminds me of a Christmas cookie my Mom use to make but can't remember what they are called. Thanks for sharing at Sunday's best, hope to see your creativeness at Sunday's Best tomorrow.
