I love me a peanut butter cookie. But I like chewy cookies — not the crumbly ones (unless I am putting on top of ice cream or yogurt!) If you're like me and like yourself a chewy cookie, you are going to love these peanut butter cookies. And there's no better time to make them since National Peanut Butter Lover's Day is March 1. Enjoy!
