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 bought Cheap. Fast. Good! from Amazon a while ago and it's honestly my favorite cookbook EVER! And I own a lot of cookbooks!
The recipes are healthy enough for me and they taste good enough for my husband. I spend practically nothing on groceries anymore and always have something good to make for dinner.
I've never been able to make a weekly menu because I just don't know ahead of time what we're going to be in the mood for, but with frozen cooked meats in the freezer and your recipes, I can always come up with just the right meal.
