Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanuts are rich in protein.Peanuts gives instant energy.I have generally heard about the peanut chikki's and balls.But today i came to know a new recipe with peanut ,and that too in a cookie category.Viji hosting this month's HBC3 Challenge posted a recipe about peanut butter cookies.I was impressed with the recipe and planned to do a post for HBC3. Finally started to prepare the cookie.This was the first time i made this cookie,was exited while doing each addition to the dish,and waited for the cookie to come out of the oven...Not surprised it tasted too good,as expected.

Castor Sugar -1 Cup
Unsalted/Cooking Butter -½ Cup(Sotened)
