Old-fashioned Cookies are Still the Best

Featured Recipe: Grandma Gayle's Peanut Butter Cookies
When Mom would bake a batch of her Peanut Butter Cookies, the whole neighborhood would flock to the house. Now she boxes them up, and sends them to the grandkids. I wonder if the post office workers can smell the deliciousness inside that plain brown box? Probably not, because the alluring aroma would surely have them breaking open the package for a nibble.
I have such fond memories of baking these cookies alongside my mom, mixing and stirring and getting to have a spoonful of peanut butter to lick while the cookies bake. Then when my girls were young, this is one of the recipes I used to teach them to bake.
Even though they get their "mid-term" box full of Grandma Gayle's Peanut Butter Cookies, they both have the recipe and bake them for their friends. It's like she is still baking for a whole group of kids, but now we live in different cities.
If you have kids, or like me just a kid at heart, surely you'll agree, Mom's Peanut Butter Cookies are still the best! Do you have a childhood recipe that has been passed down? If you'd like to share, email me the recipe (no attachments, please) at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll pick a few to share around the holidays on the blog.
Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
I was thrilled to see your column in the Charlotte Observer this morning.
A friend gave me your first book as a Christmas present one year. I use it all the time. Actually, we had Two-for One Noodles last night. I've purchased all your books. When we moved, the cookbooks were packed up in storage. I went out and purchased more just to have them with me! I rely on them so much.
Just wanted you to know I’m a faithful follower.
