“I got these out of a cookbook called "Just a Matter of Thyme." They are the best peanut butter cookies ever. This makes a really large batch of cookie dough. I was always afraid to cut the recipe in half in fear that it would loose something. Today I finally quartered it and they turned out just as good! When I make the whole batch I usually put half the cookies in the freezer and they are just as good. In fact I kind of like them straight out of the freezer too. This is the softest peanut butter cookie ever=)”
