“I have made so many recipes, looking for this one. If you try this one you will know what I mean. 50 years ago a neighbor gave me this recipe.And some years ago I lost it. Every time my son comes home he begs me to make peanut butter cookies, he loved them as a kid.But always has this look, like there not the same.Can't wait to see him eat this recipe. Bet you can't eat just one. I found this on recipe link from Judy. Thank you Judy.”
