Day 16: Peanut Butter Blossoms

These are my favorite cookies!!

You put chocolate and peanut butter together and you have me sold. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, Brownies with Peanut Butter centers, Reese Peanut Butter cups, Nutty Bars…. you name it.  Peanut Butter & Chocolate no matter what it is, I will eat it.  Probably already have. 

I have shown you how to make the “fruit cake” of the cookie world, now it is time to make the “Super Star” of the cookie world.  This is the best peanut butter cookie recipe that I have ever made, once you make this one you will never want for another one. Guaranteed! 

Shine on cookie, shine on!
