Peanut Butter Cutout Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's a nice change of pace from the more traditional sugar cookie cutouts. And children will find that these peanut butter versions are just as much fun to decorate with frosting, sprinkles and a dash of yuletide imagination.

"I made this and it was a huge hit! I want to make it again, but I don't need 4 1/2 dozen.Can you provide the measurements to only yield 12-14 cookies?"

"I enjoyed these cookies although the taste was very mild. I would have liked a stronger peanut butter flavor. When they first set up they were hard but then softened after settin in a covered container."

MY REVIEW

"Tasteless! I registered just to leave this review. Flour-tasting and dense. Salvaged the batter by adding 4T butter and a 1/4c brown sugar. Better, but not worth making this recipe again. I was making bone shaped cookies for human consumption to celebrate my puppy's first birthday - I literally fed the first batch of cookies to my dog! He liked them, but don't make them for human friends!"
