peanut butter cookiesMy recipe book contains several hand written copies of this recipe; yet each one is recorded with different variations… such was life before copiers and computers. For the sake of my family, here is the correct version of your grandma’s peanut butter cookies. They are not gluten free or dairy free, they have too much sugar, too much butter, but are a classic all the same with a pleasant peanuty flavor! My hand written recipe on notebook paper that is stained from repeated use, brings back vivid memories of my mom and I am hopeful a new generation will create fond memories of their own while eating a fresh-from-the-oven cookie!
