There’s just something about a sugar cookie. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some are hard, some are soft. Some are chewy. Big and little. I’ve never met a sugar cookie I didn’t fall in love with.  You can frost them, you can use them to make a sandwich cookie.

Sugar cookies are just the best basic cookie, if that makes any sense. Everyone loves a sugar cookie. These Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies have to be my favorite.

I love peanut butter to begin with. The peanut butter flavor oi subtle. It won’t knock you over like a traditional Peanut Butter cookie does. The first thing your notice when you bite into one of these is the crisp outer cookie, with the sugar granules tickling your tongue.  Then you’ll realize that inside that crisp shell is a chewy middle. And then finally, you’ll realize they are peanut butter.

As you can see, these are a thin cookie. Perfect on their own but just imagine adding chocolate ice cream between two cookies for a fun summer treat. Or a peanut butter buttercream in the center for the ultimate peanut butter sandwich cookie.

These cookies don’t stick around long in my house. It’s just too easy for my kids to grab a stack off the cooling rack and walk off. Occasionally they’ll slow down long enough to grab a glass of milk to go with them.
