Peanut Butter Cookies | Eggles Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies, an easy  & delicious melt in mouth cookies that even beginners can try without any difficulties. During our initial days in the US, whenever we stayed at a hotel, breads & peanut butter became the savior for me. Though the hotel menu had various other spreads for bread, i liked only the peanut butter. My love for peanut butter has started there and it's continuous till date.,even today i love peanut butter like anything and use it often in sandwiches and noodles. If you haven't tried my peanut butter noodles yet, you must give it a try, it's such a flavorful noodle recipe that can be prepared in minutes 

Ps: Final photos have been updated lately and it's made with white sugar, that's the reason for the difference in color between step by step pics and final pics.

Coming to today recipe, Long back, I had noted down this recipe from one of the Martha Stewart recipe books that i borrowed from our local library. Though her recipe has eggs, i omitted it since i'm not a fan of eggy smell in cookies  and it turned out perfectly soft and delicious.If you love peanut butter like me, then give it a try and enjoy with your families.
