Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are quick and easy and absolutely delicious.  I once made them after a failed dessert attempt when we were having company over, a saving grace!  I highly recommend one of the many optional ingredients you could add to suit it to whoever you need.  You could add chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, or butterscotch chips.  I would recommend using the mini chips if possible because the cookies are best made in small shapes.  I recently made them with added cacao powder for a chocolate peanut butter cookie and it was a big hit.  Any kind of peanut butter will do, just be aware that if you use a natural or homemade peanut butter with no added sugar, it will be a stickier dough, but just as delicious.

I make sure I always have the ingredients on hand so I can make these cookies in a pinch!  Enjoy!
