MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 16, 2014

These are in my mind the perfect peanut butter cookie. I use dark brown sugar for an even richer flavor. For half the cookies I added m&m's because my husband loves them. I stored them in an air tight container and they remained soft. This is my go to recipe for peanut butter cookies.
