Here at Lunchbox Dad I like to show you parenting products and food that will help you out and make your life easier. Normally we talk about lunches and family dinners, but with the holidays right around the corner, I had to share this amazing Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Cookie recipe we came up with. Actually it's two slightly different recipes but you can make both at the same time. The Reindeer Cookies are a fun variant for kids! 

My family heard about Skippy Peanut Butter's #SkippyYIPPEECookies Pinterest contest and we knew we must bake these cookies for inspiration and enter the contest by creating a Pinterest board. It's so easy I wanted to encourage you Lunchbox Dad readers to enter as well. After all, you could win the ultimate kitchen baking kit, one thousand dollars, or a year's supply of peanut butter! All that for just creating a holiday board on Pinterest. To see the rules to enter the contest just click HERE.

Some of the best times that my family has is gathering in the kitchen for cooking and baking. It might sound funny, but if you have never cooked a meal with your spouse or baked cookies with your kids then you are missing out. I am challenging you to experiment in the kitchen, try new things, let your kids get silly, and laugh a lot. After all, that's how my family came up with these delicious cookie recipes. We used Skippy because its tastes awesome and they are all about using their peanut butter to help transform every day, ordinary moments into extraordinary fun! 

Make no mistake, these are the peanut butter cookie recipes you have been waiting your entire life for, and the recipes are below. They are perfect for the holidays or even just anytime when you need something salty and sweet. For more info about Skippy be sure and check them out on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
