Peanut Butter Cookies

I baked cookies tonight so that Dino could drop them off at work for our friend (and his co-worker) because his birthday is Saturday, and he works the night shift. I figured it would be a nice surprise. I got this recipe from my mom, and it’s the BEST peanut butter cookie recipe I’ve ever had. People always love these cookies. Of course, we did a little quality control to make sure that they turned out well. I tend to make them a little large, and I got 21 cookies this time around.
