Fancy Peanut Butter Cookies

I always knew that my peanut butter cookies were missing something!

For my friend’s 23rd I wanted to make cookies that scream “birthday” – fun, colorful, sweet. And since this birthday is going to be a potluck, I thought I’d try out this new recipe that comes from Sally’s Baking Addiction. These cookies are soft, moist, and sweet; just ensure you keep them in an airtight… Continue reading Cake Batter Cookies
