1. What are peanut butter cookies?

Peanut butter cookies are exactly what they sound like - cookies made with peanut butter. They can be made with smooth or crunchy peanut butter, cooked as either a soft or crunchy cookie, and are usually rolled in sugar before being pressed flat with a fork or having a chocolate candy pressed into their centers. While peanut butter itself has been around for centuries, peanut butter cookies were only invented in the last 120 years!
