Study Break Peanut Butter Cookies

Okay I was in desperate need of junk food but could not really find anything that tickled my fancy. So I decided to make some peanut butter cookies.  I must admit they were very easy to make and only took me around 15 minutes to get ready.  I prefer my cookies to be slightly chewy in the middle so I cooked them for 12 minutes, if you like more crunchy cookies cook them for slightly longer around 18-20 minutes.
