1/2 cup butter, softened
1/8 cup sugar
3/4 cup finely chopped, roasted peanuts

Method:Preheat the oven to 350F. Meanwhile, chop up the peanuts into tiny pieces.Then cream butter and sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer. When soft and fluffy, incorporate the peanuts, vanilla, and salt. Pile on the flour and mix until… a crumbly dough forms.Press together with the palm of your hands into balls.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until light golden brown.Roll into a happy pile of powdered sugar and don’t stop until each cookie looks like a delicate cloud.Enjoy with a friend (or a more-than-friend) who you love with all your heart
