Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies are one of the many favorite cookies in my home. For many North Americans, they remind us of school. It specifically reminds me of first grade at PS 20 New York. I only went there for one week, but I never forgot those peanut butter cookies I ate there for snack. I left to a private school and I did not eat more of these delicious cookies .... until I made them for my girls eight years ago. These cookies are very easy to make. Enjoy!
