The Best Ever Crackle Top Peanut Butter Cookies

Freshly baked cookies on cooling rack. I love making cookies, especially around the holidays!   One of my favorite recipes is for is Crackle Top Peanut Butter Cookies!  They are so good!  They have a great peanut butter taste and are rolled around in sugar before being baked!  They are 100 percent homemade and are a huge success every time I make them! My sister in law writes for a local paper and she even did an article on how much she loves them.  Like I said they are a big hit!  I know many people do cookie exchanges at Christmas time and this would be a wonderful one to make!
