Can’t go wrong with a good peanut butter cookie. I don’t make these enough usually the kids want chocolate chip but yesterday they were pleasantly surprised with these yummy cookies. I got the recipe out of the cook book “Where Hearts Gather” that I really enjoy because it’s down home cooking. The author of the cookbook gives all her family favorites from Grandma to herself. I have tried many of the recipes all have been good.
