Double Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

THE EXTRA TASTE of peanut butter in the middle of the cookie is a delicious surprise the first time you bite into one. It's a nice, soft cookie and fun to make with little helpers. Kids love to put that extra dab of peanut butter in the middle and snitch some at the same time. -Jeannette Mack, Rushville, New York

"my mother had the 1966 better homes and gardens cook book of which i used many times in my childhood. as a child i made these cookies many, many times. my brother would pass through the kitchen many times while i was baking these and grab some. so i would have to make a triple batch if there was to be any for anyone else."

"This recipe is a reprint from a 1966 better homes and gardens cook book which I own. This cookie really tastes like peanut butter. I have found that you probably should reduce the salt amount unless you are using organic pb, or pb you make yourself. The pb from the store has too much salt"
