San Francisco Sourdough Peanut Butter Cookies

The weekend is over and I somehow found myself in the kitchen searching for some easy cookie recipe. I woke up with a sweet tooth and quickly decided that I should use my sourdough starter and make something that will put anyone in a good mood. It was a great decision. The peanut butter cookies were perfect for after school snack and I even sent some to our neighbors to enjoy.

Here is the recipe.
