Let me begin by telling you these are not healthy or low-fat cookies. I made them because I was aching to bake and I did not feel like a trip to the store. In case you hadn’t noticed, this is my M.O. I added chocolate chips even though the recipe did not officially call for them. You could also wait until the cookies are finished and add a Hershey’s Kiss! My cookies came out flat (I think my baking soda is old). Make sure your baking soda is fresh to ensure fluffy cookies!
The flavor in these cookies is outstanding and I will definitely be making them again! The simplicity of this recipe makes it a great recipe for kids too!
My peanut butter of choice is Earth’s Pride Organic Peanut Butter from Bj’s Wholesale. The ingredients are organic dry roasted peanuts and sea salt; no added oils or sugar.
