SRC: Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

Welcome to another Secret Recipe Club Group D reveal day. Each month we are assigned a blog in secret and we then choose 1 recipe to make and blog about on the same reveal day which is today. I made this recipe early in the month but I can still remember the amazing smells from my kitchen and the lovely flavour from these cookies. They are definitely for peanut butter lovers like me - soft, crumbly and full of peanut butter flavour. Needless to say, these were really popular and I'm sure I'll be making them again soon. 

My assigned blog this month is Making Miracles written by Rebekah who started her blog in 2006 to record her experiences in surrogacy but it has since evolved to include her day to day life, including what her son and puppies have been up to and the recipes that she creates in the kitchen. You can read more about her surrogacy experience here which is truly inspiring. She had my blog last month and made my Neiman Marcus Cookies and it's pure coincidence that I also chose a cookie recipe to make. 

She has lots of amazing recipes on her blog and although it was difficult to pick one, I knew what I wanted to make as soon as I saw her Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies. Other recipes that have also caught my eye are Avocado and Banana bread, Chocolate Chip Cookie Souffle and Lemon Sunshine Cake

 Luckily I bought some peanut butter chips from my recent trip to America 

 adding in PB chips
