Peanut Butter Cookies

These peanut butter cookies are so much better then the recipe on the back of your peanut butter container. Fluffy, crispy and chewy, delicious to the last crumb. At my house, as soon as the kids here the mixer going they come running wanting to know what's coming out of the oven next. My oldest 2 love peanut butter. They eat it straight off a spoon or as dip with there fruit, so naturally they would also love it in cookie form. Feel free to add peanuts or chocolate chips to shake things up a bit.
