I have tried several different peanut butter cookie recipes including Martha Stewart’s and the Joy of Cooking but they all came out a little dry. I like a really chewy peanut butter cookie. This is the best peanut butter cookie recipe I have found and it is pretty fool proof. This time I made it because I had a huge jar of Adams natural peanut butter from costco, and it worked just as well as with the more usual Kraft peanut butter.
