Place in an airtight jar for tasty treats at any time for up to a week.
You must dip the tines between the cookies in a bit of sugar to help prevent the fork from sticking while making a cross-hatch pattern on the cookies.
Use smooth, salted peanut butter for the best results. There’s no need to use sweetened peanut butter, but if that’s what you’ve got on hand, then you can use it, but you’re going to decrease the sugar to 2 tbsp. If you are using a natural peanut butter without a stabilizer, make sure that after opening the jar, you mix it very well because if not, the oil heavy top of that jar will result in runny cookies. Lastly, you can use any brand of peanut butter you enjoy.
