If recipe testing has taught me anything this week, it’s this: Not everyone likes peanut butter cookies. For example, two and a half of my kids. (One can’t decide. Because #kids.)
But if you like peanut butter cookies these are the peanut butter cookies for you.
Actually, if you like peanut butter cookies that your KIDS CAN MAKE FOR YOU, these are definitely the peanut butter cookies for you.
With only four ingredients (that I’m pretty sure you already have at home) your nine-year-old could be baking a treat in time for dessert tonight.
And all you have to do is buy the groceries.
