These are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had.  They come from the blog Lick the bowl good, Monica has a heart warming story about the origin of these cookies.  Her title for these cookies is Welfare Peanut Butter Cookies.  You can click her blog title above and head on over to her blog to read her story about these cookies.  Thanks Monica for sharing this wonderful cookie recipe!  The only thing I did a little different is I dip my fork in sugar before I flatten them.  This puts a sugar coating on the top of the cookie...yummy!
