Then gradually add the flour and cocoa mixture. Mix until the dough comes together.

Form into balls and place 1 1/2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. (We love this one from Pampered Chef. You know how some pans like to warp in the oven when they get hot? This one does not do that.)

You can slightly mash the cookies if you want. We did a traditional fork criss-cross pattern. (I think it is printed in the Food Bible somewhere that peanut butter cookies must have this.)

Now here is the important part : Bake for no longer than 8 minutes. Anything longer than 8 minutes and they can turn out dry.

Depending on your oven, you may have to test this. I err on the side of caution and pull the Peanut Butter Cookies out of the oven at about 7 1/2 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Totally easy cookie recipe!

Snack away, my friends.
