Peanut Butter Cookies, an easy  & delicious melt in mouth cookies that even beginners can try.During our initial days in US, whenever we had stayed at hotel, bread & peanut butter became the saviour for me in the breakfast time. Though the hotel menu had various other spread for bread, i liked only the peanut butter. My love for peanut butter had started like this,even today i love to have it as such.
