Just because the holiday season is coming to an end doesn’t mean that your holiday baking has to as well. Cookies are not a season, they are a way of life. These peanut butter cookies require only a few ingredients to make and take no more than 15 minutes bake.

And don’t let their Plain Jane appearance fool you. Every bite is rich with peanut butter that’s even better than the last. Plus, it’s what’s on the inside that really matters.
