Shopping Tips:

I used (and love) Jif Peanut Butter in these cookies. But feel free to use your favorite. For the best results use a creamy peanut butter that does not require stirring.

Trivia Tidbit: 

Did you know that National Chocolate Day is October 28?

  1. Is it possible to make this without egg? It looks like the egg whites is what gives it shape… Any ideas for a substitution?

    1. Hi Zomick,

      The egg helps the dough stick together so I wouldn't suggest leaving it out. If you are egg free maybe search for substitutes (flax maybe?).
