Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

These little cookies look so pretty, but they’re actually extremely easy to make. That is why I decided to make these last minute for my company garage sale. The day before, I decided I wanted to bake something for my co-workers who would be working that weekend for the garage sale (only a select few were chosen to work). I thought it would be a nice treat.

They only took about 2 hours to make and they are more than worth it. It’s kind of surprising how great these cookies turned out, and they don’t even use flour! Such a simple cookie. You gotta love simple!

My favorite part about making peanut butter cookies is to make the criss-cross pattern. It’s kind of satisfying to squish a fork into the dough and come out with a pattern.
