Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies, Member atypicalsmith

The BEST peanut butter cookie I've ever made! I doubled the recipe but did add another 1/2 cup of flour (total of 2-1/2 cups) based on a couple of comments, and they were very easy to roll in balls, especially when refrigerated a bit. The doubled recipe made almost exactly 6 dozen cookies, so the original recipe did indeed only make 3 dozen as indicated by others. Next time I'm going to add white chocolate chips to it, yummmmmmm!
