Homestead Peanut Butter Cookies

Who doesn’t like a nice, warm, chewy peanut butter cookie?  I suppose its a problem for those that are allergic to peanuts.  I don’t know what I’d do if that was the case for me.  A batch of these barely lasts the day when we make them.  The house fills with that lovely peanut aroma while they bake.  You can toss a handful of chocolate chips into the recipe if you like, making them that much more addictive.  I know the recipe says to allow the cookies to cool on the counter after you take them out of the oven, but I highly doubt you’ll follow that part of the instructions!
