Cookie Review

The cookies I baked yesterday are edible. They are tasty. They are DRY. I think young kids might not mind or even be put down by the texture but they are NOT CHEWY. 

WE LIKE CHEWY Peanut Butter Cookies!
So to make up to you, here is a REALLY GOOD CHEWY Recipe.
Guess it's better to do things the long way sometimes.

"Tried and true" best peanut butter cookies - EVER!
Peanut Butter Cookies from My Grandma's Recipe Collection
My last batch made 2015
Sift together - 
2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt

Blend well before adding flour mixture -
1 C peanut butter
2 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter (1 stick) I said BUTTER!! (Don't melt!)
2 eggs

Add -
1 tsp pure vanilla
1/2 C whole milk 

Cool dough in refrigerator for a bit, then teaspoon 12 scoops to an ungreased cookie sheet. Sometimes I don't press them into a ball and flatten with a sugared fork, because I don't feel it is necessary, but you can if you wish!

Bake - 350° oven 9-11 minutes depending on how crunchy you like them. The less time in the oven the chewier they are!

After baking, let them rest a bit before removing from sheet to paper bags to cool; then later put into containers.

Makes about 4 dozen, depending on size.
