These Peanut Butter Cookies are perfect dessert that can be prepared ahead of time and kept on hand for surprise guests.
Everyone's favorite cookies gets a double hit of peanut butter. Peanut butter is added to the dough and the balls of cookies are sprinkled with peanut before they are flattened.
Have used only 1/4 cup of brown sugar since I prefer a not so sweet cookies but add more if you want it sweeter.
You can also omit the cherries by shaping the balls of dough then flatten them using a fork in a crisscross pattern.
