Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is adapted from the Grand Central Baking Cookbook...Grand Central is the bakery in Pioneer Square in Seattle...the one you wait in line at...this is a traditional Peanut Butter cookie..This recipe is the one that you can roll the dough in balls and bake and when then are just out of the oven you can put the hersheys kiss right in the middle....also would be very festive to dip half the cookie in melted chocolate, then dry on racks...I made these cookies for my grandchildren. I have learned that they don't like any 'funny stuff' when it comes to food....
This delicious recipe makes cookies that are crisp around the edges, while still soft on the inside...
