Special Extra

Personalize the dough by adding 1/2 cup raisins, dried cranberries or chopped dried apricots to the dough before rolling into balls.

How to Make Cookie Dough Easier to Handle

The dough for these peanut butter cookies is very soft. For easier handling, refrigerate the dough for 30 min. before rolling into balls. When flattening the balls of dough, use a fork dipped in flour to help prevent sticking.
