Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies

I have to be honest, there is nothing healthy about this recipe. It's full of fat, lots of sugar, and calories. However, these are the best tasting peanut butter cookies I've ever had in my entire life. Period. End of story.

Every once in a while, you need to splurge, right?
