After a wonderful blogcation I’m back! We had a fun and family filled weekend that was just what I needed. I spent time with the kids walking everywhere, exploring spring flowers, digging tunnels at White Sands (the natural sand box that is practically in my mother-in-law’s backyard), and reading a few good books. April is full of traveling, packing, and moving and this was just the calm I needed before the crazy.
Since I’m still feeling a bit like I’m on vacation I thought I’d keep things simple and light with my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe today. It’s a keeper. These cookies turn out soft and chewy with just the right amount of peanut butter flavor. The secret to soft and chewy peanut butter cookies is just a bit of corn syrup. I know corn syrup isn’t a super natural product, but I have it on hand to make our very favorite white cloud icing. Just a little goes a long ways in the texture department for this recipe, so it’s worth using a bit in my opinion.
Hope you all can take a slow day, bake some cookies, listen to the spring bird chirps, and enjoy this perfect weather! Thanks so much for stopping in!
And if you are in the mood, here are a few other peanut butter cookies recipes that I thought looked amazing:

Have a great Monday.
