Peanut butter cookies are the simplest to make and are always in demand. Kids as well as adults love them. You don’t need extra effort to decorate these cookies – just press with a fork, and a nice pattern will appear. To make the cookies more elaborate a white or dark chocolate chip, a butterscotch chip, a peanut, or a piece of dry fruit can be inserted in the center of the cookie.

When I am talking about simple pleasures and family gathering I am also thinking about homemade peanut butter cookies.
