Jane's Best Ever Peanut Butter Cookies

30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
11 ingredients
5 servings
This recipe came from my mother, Jane Hand, when I asked her for her best recipes so that I could save them for my daughters. Not being a PB cookie lover, I set this aside until needing a sweet for work. My co-workers raved about it. I had lost the recipe until today so now that I have found it, I figured I had better post it for posterity. Enjoy! A recent reviewer thought the temp was too high so I have adjusted. New temp and time is listed.
