Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

Way back in the 80’s I owned a bakery with my aunt. These are the¬†Peanut Butter Cookies we used to sell then. They are soft and chewy with a good peanut butter flavor.

I am usually not one to use margarine anymore but in these cookies I find it works best. We always used Imperial margarine so I’m not sure if it would make a difference or not if you used another brand. I think the margarine is what helps besides the use of both brown and white sugar that gives these cookies their great texture.
