Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

This is another one of those "wait, I haven't shared that yet?" recipes. I made some the other day, for my husband. These are Nate's favorites, and I like to be on his good side. ;) (Plus, if I occasionally bake something that his favorite, he doesn't complain much about all the other baking I do!) 

These cookies are one of the classic recipes that my mama's been baking since before my memory even starts. (Quite likely before I was even born.) They are definitely Nate's favorite cookie. He's not much of a cookie person, but he loves these. They are perfectly soft, and basically irresistible. (Thus, the name!)
