Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Get excited, y’all!  Jennifer from Pink When is back today sharing some soft and chewy peanut butter cookies!

Take it away Jennifer….

I love these soft and chewy peanut butter cookies so much, it’s hard to share. They are so easy to make, and the family can’t get enough of them! With school starting in just a few weeks, I only havea little more time with the kiddos home all day helping me bake in the kitchen. I hope to make the most of it and this is a perfect recipe for getting your little ones engaged, and helping in the kitchen.
