Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Hi – it’s Gavin! I hope you’re having a great weekend. I’m back trying to earn some more money for Disney World. I’ve been working very hard and doing extra chores to have some money. Today, mommy planned a party for our friend (Kristyn – it was a baby shower). A lot of people came over. And there was lots of yummy food. One of those yummy recipes was these easy Peanut Butter Cookies. We’ve made them for a long time and everyone loves them. They are soft, delicious and easy to make too!

There are so many different types of peanut butter cookies, but these ones are easy, chewy and soft. My mom says that’s how all peanut butter cookies should be, and I agree!

  3. Place on greased cookie sheet and make a criss cross on top using a fork.

These cookies have creamy peanut butter in them, which make them so good. It’s something that I love and if you love it too, then I think you’ll love these cookies just as much as we did!
