Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies

Fantastic cookies!!!! I haven't made peanut butter cookies for at least a year and upon tasting one of these, I just kept going and ate 3. Then my brothers and my sister came back from classes and they also just loved these cookies. I made 1/2 of the recipe, but it still made 30 cookies using my cookie scoop. The only change I made was to add a few shakes of sea salt from my shaker and rather than rolling them into balls and then in sugar, I just dipped my fork into the sugar before making the marks in my scoops, much easier. Mine cooked perfectly in 7 minutes. They are slightly crisp on the edges and soft in the middle, just perfect.

This is a quick and easy recipe- I used creamy peanut butter-but next time for added flavor I might try crunchy style PB. I also added 2 TBS of regular milk ( it keeps the cookies from drying out). I cooked the cookies about 10 to 11 minutes in my electric oven and they were golden brown- left them on the cookie pan about 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. They are very light and moist and chewy also. I hadn't made PB cookies for about 10 years and this was a nice treat.
