Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Monday, August 3, 2009

The other day I opened my mailbox to find I had received a free copy of Betty Crocker's Best-Loved Collection: Cookies & Bars; which is currently on sale through your grocer or where magazines are sold through September 8, 2009.

It couldn't have arrived at a better time since my sweet tooth was starting to get the best of me. :)

After flipping through the 116 available recipes, I decided on the Peanut Butter Cookies.
