Shortcut Peanut Butter Cookies

I saw this recipe and was immediately intrigued or was it my craving for peanut butter.  I really don't know.  Either way it is simple, easy and perfect for a quick treat.  Not to mention delicous.  They are a very soft cookie and I think they were even better the next day.

  1. Now I am craving some cookies! Those look great and very easy, too!

  2. Oh YEAH I think I even have everything here for this!!! Oh yes I'm making it today!!! Yes I actually stood up and checked the cupboard :)

  3. Yummers!! These look so puffy and big!! Why does everyone criss cross with a fork on PB cookies? I like to mess people up and not do the criss crosses and they get so mad, they say "these are NOT PB cookies". Such an anarchist, huh!

  4. Shortbread and peanut butter cookies are two of my favorite kids of cookies. Smash them together and it must be heaven. I can't wait to try these!!!
