I’m currently on a peanut butter kick. I’ve been enjoying it on rice cakes, celery, toast… and I would love to have some in a cookie. I always like peanut butter, but it is not my favorite. Sometimes I just get a craving, and I must satisfy it. I crave it, I eat it, I am comforted!… Hence, the blog titled ‘Comfort Food Infusion’… 🙂 I made a half batch of this and it yielded over 30 cookies. They are chewy, peanut buttery, and have the perfect amount of sweetness. These delightfully delicious cookies have satisfied my craving, as well as the rest of my families’. They are simple and quick to make… but, they will be gone in a flash!
