Peanut Butter Cookies

This is my grandmother's recipe. I have experimented with this recipe dozens of times. You really get a rich peanut butter taste. At the same time, the cookie is moist, not too sweet and soft.  

 If you cream a softer or even melted butter, you will get a flatter cookie that looks like this.
