Mom's Secret Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

“I found this on Pinterest, and this recipe is the bomb. I don't know how many the recipe makes--I just know it's a lot. I doubled the recipe and realized I probably didn't need to. The recipe said to bak for 1 to 2 minutes, but I baked mine for 10. I'm pretty sure they meant 10 to 12 minutes. Yum!”
