Chris says: Peanut cookies are very easy to make and we always have some around the house.

These cookies will store for quite awhile in an air-tight container, and you can adjust the quantities in this recipe to produce the number you want very easily too.

This mixture will make about 30 to 35 cookies. If you need a greater or lesser amount, vary the ingredient quantities as appropriate.
