Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Unbaked Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is UNBAKED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES!!

It’s summertime and the last thing many of us want to do is turn on the oven to bake cookies.  However, that doesn’t mean we have to do without homemade cookies for the next three months.  Many of you might recognize this old-fashioned recipe.  I know it was a family favorite when I was growing up.  They’re flavorful — I really like peanut butter — and quick to make…without heating up the house!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
