Mom's Cooking: How to Make Peanut Butter Cookies

Updated on October 22, 2016

These peanut butter cookies never get old to me. The recipe here has added some chocolate chips to the mix. You can either use the chunky peanut butter or the plain. I prefer the chunky because of the extra crunch it gives the cookies. So grab some milk and enjoy!
