    Really easy to make and I can honestly say this is the best peanut butter cookie I've ever tasted and baked. It has a nice smooth texture and it's not overly crumbly. The sweet and salty combination is just great. I used salted peanuts because I didn't have any pretzels at hand and I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and it's sweet enough. My husband came home and he had five at once! This recipe is a keeper!!!
