Peanut butter cookies

These are far from the classic peanut butter cookies that I grew up eating that had the fork imprints on top. I’m not really a huge peanut butter cookie fan to begin with, but I do really like those for what they are. This recipe is more like a grown up peanut butter-flavored sugar cookie. Although untraditional, it is quite tasty. The peanut butter flavor is subtle, there is a nice chewy middle and crispy edges, and it’s a cookie that I surprisingly found myself coming back to for more.
