Perfect Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

If you’re looking for the perfect peanut butter cookie recipe, look no further.  My husband loves a thick, yet soft and chewy cookie – so I was on a mission to find and perfect the peanut butter cookie early in our marriage. I tweaked a recipe early on and it has been my reliable go to. I’ve given this recipe out to more people than I can remember!  I hope you enjoy it as well (also very tasty with peanut butter or chocolate chips added!).
