Old-fashioned Cookies are Still the Best

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 alicia@kitchenscoop.com. I’ll pick a few to share around the holidays on the blog.
