Peanut butter cookies are the ultimate classic cookies. They are easy to make, comforting, and delicious. What more do you need from a cookie?
The Other day I really wanted a cookie, I even went to the market, but I just couldn't bring myself to buy "manufactured" cookies. Also, I was going to limit myself to one cookie, so I was kind of hoping to find a cookie as big as my head!
During the holidays I give away cookie boxes to family & friends and remembered that everyone had raved about the peanut butter cookies. To the holiday "cookie files" I went!The giant cookie above is result. Even though they are not as big as my head they were still very delicious and comforting.
The recipe is from Martha Stewart and of course I changed a couple of things. I used creamy peanut butter instead of chunky and I made the cookies large enough so that only 6 fit on a standard cookie sheet. The recipe makes 48 but, I only got 16 giant cookies. Classic!
