Cookies for Santa

Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s Christmas cookie season and I’ve been baking up a storm. I took my usual recipe and doubled it to make over 5 dozen cookies. Then I added some mini Reese’s pieces and chocolate chips for a cookie that really hits the spot. Whether you make these cookies for Santa, a friend, or yourself, these are sure to hit the spot.
