It's been a longtime pattern in our house that we end up having a quarter of a bag of each kind of cereal sitting in the cupboards. Perhaps we get bored of them after a while, I'm not quite sure. I've found a great way to get more use out of them when they're being ignored is to turn them into cookies. Here, I've used the last of my raisin bran and crispy rice cereals to make peanut butter cookies. They are light, flakey, and hard to resist!

This is one of my recipe creations. Hope you like these as much as my family does.
I like these cookies because they are made with honey rather than sugar, so are not as sweet as the typical peanut butter cookie. The use of the honey also results in a softer, rather than crisp cookie.
I made these for a friend who is infatuated with peanut butter cups. The cookie part of it is soft but holds together beautifully with the peanut butter cup stuffed inside.
You may have noticed a recipe for super easy peanut butter cookies. The recipe calls for just 3 ingredients, egg, peanut butter, and sugar. Well, I tried this recipe on the recommendation of my dear friend, Beverly, and it is outstanding!
My children made and entered these at the county fair one year. Each won the blue ribbon in their respective age group for the "Peanut Butter Cookie" category.
I am looking for a cookie recipe that is a lot like the oatmeal nobake cookies except it has saltine crackers and peanut butter but doesn't have the cocoa. This is a drop cookie.
These are so easy and use only 3 ingredients. They also taste great!
This an easy, quick recipe for your Christmas Season.
These are cutely shaped peanut butter cookies, with a little licorice tail.
I have a number of peanut butter cookie recipes. All of them are in the "cookie" state. ie drop cookies or cut out cookies.

I thought I had just a plain old fashion one, but I have as of yet to find it. Found peanut butter doggie treats and even this peanut cookie recipe. But not the plain simple one my daughter used.
Anyway for the diehard peanut fan heres the peanut cookie recipe and where I dug it up.
~From the Carnation Cook book by Mary Blake copyright 1946, Carnation Company. Printed in the U.SA. ~ This is for that diehard Peanut fan- yes I mean Peanut not Peanut butter.

&frac; cup Carnation Milk, undiluted
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups confectioners' sugar
4 cups finely chopped peanuts
Separate eggs. Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Add salt in nuts, then fold in stiffly beaten eggs whites. The mixture should be very stiff. Drop from teaspoon onto waxed paper. Bake in a moderate oven 350 to 375 degrees until brown, about 15 minutes. Remove paper and cookies form baking sheet. Cool before pulling cookies from paper.
I just made latrtatr's recipe and it is great! I like that you use a full cup of peanut butter. So many only take 2/3 cup. Just don't over bake them and they are delish!
I am looking for a cookie recipe that includes chopped up peanut butter cups and possibly chocolate chips. I made this recipe once but can't find it.

Hoping that someone will have the recipe. I wouldn't be too eager if I were you because of the problems with peanut butter, and peanut paste foods that have been pulled from all grocery store shelves.
575 people became ill and has been linked to eight deaths.
Here is one...dont know if it is the same one you had:
To make sure your peanut butter products are not on the recall list check here:
Reese's on their site states that their products are safe.
None of my products are recalled.
The peanut butter recall won't last forever.
This isn't the recipe you wanted, but another *delicious* use of peanut butter cups and chocolate chips....make a boxed brownie mix (as directed on the box) and before you bake them, sprinkle the chopped up peanut butter cups and the chocolate chips on top! Bake as directed on the box! This will go like "hots-cakes!"
For years and years I have done this with my brownies only with peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. It is fun (and fattening...lol) to experiment with different toppings like Milky Ways or Snickers (chopped up), or caramel bits, or Rolos, or anything like that! Yummy!
