Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Looking to put a little peanutty goodness in your life? Give this peanut butter cookie recipe a try.

A Harvard Study states that eating peanut butter can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The way I see it, a plate full of peanut butter cookies is just what the doctor ordered.

America has a love affair with peanuts. According to the Peanut Institute, Americans eat more than 2.4 Billion pound of peanuts every year and half of those are eaten in the form of Peanut Butter. Whew!

A less popular form is the Peanut Butter Cookie, but certainly no less delicious.

These peanut butter cookies use chopped peanuts which give them a great chunky flavor. Toast the peanuts for a little extra nutty flavor.
