I get out a couple of my cookbooks and start to compare recipes. They vary a little from book to book, so I decide to take what sounds the best from each cookie recipe to make my own "super cookie". Super cookie indeed! So creamy and delicious. Peanut Butter Cookies aren't really my favorite, but I will definately make these again if someone wants Peanut Butter Cookies.
I think the key with a cookie like this, is that you want a really creamy, fluffy batter. And that's what I got
