Peanut Butta

I found a better peanut butter cookie! I dont know if its the best yet but this one is way better than the super greasy one I was using from veg web. I found this on Wholesome Sweeteners website and veganized it. They have lots of recipes for fancy sugars and I bet they are all pretty good. Sugar companies should know how to make cookies after all
