{Sweet Tooth} Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

On the weekend I decided to satisfy my sweet tooth and make some Peanut Butter biscuits while visiting my parents. This is a recipe that my mom has been making since we were kids and is one of my favourites. Crunchy, peanut goodness, just delicious! You’ll find the recipe at the end of the post, I believe it originally came from one of  The Australian Women’s Weekly issues.
