Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

I haven’t quite mastered the whole photography thing yet and today just was not my day. Every time I thought I had a good picture I looked and it was slightly blurry. I was so frustrated that I even considered not sharing this delicious recipe with you. After some careful thought I realized you all deserve the best and that’s why I finally decided to share the oh so soft and chewy peanut butter cookie recipe with you.

Who doesn’t love a soft peanut butter cookie with a tall glass of milk? (actually I really dislike the taste of milk and I’m not really a fan of cookies but I thought these cookies were fabulous!) My boyfriend is absolutely obsessed with chocolate and peanut butter so more times than not the recipes I post will include one or both ingredients. These peanut butter cookies are so soft and chewy you won’t be able to keep your family away from them! My boyfriend had his mouth stuffed with them as soon as he got back from class today (I’m not even sure if he had his boots off yet). I hope you enjoy these cookies just as much as we did!

Today began a new day for a poll! If you look on the home page of my blog you will see a poll titled “What Recipe Would You Like?” on the right hand side. Please take the time to vote. All it takes is one click and I seriously love having you all decide what I make next. I get just as excited as you when I find out the winning recipe (it’s almost as exciting as Christmas morning).
