This is another of my memories from childhood. I made these cookies back in the '50's when I was quite young. Mother gave me the cookbook where they were written inside, I was still quite young. They are your basic standard peanut butter cookie, but none of the others have these exact same ingredients, so I get to share yet another treasure from my past.

Barbara these pb cookies are so delicious! I had to make them to add to my cookie tins and chose this recipe as they looked just like the ones I used to make. I think it's the same recipe! They will be eaten and enjoyed this holiday season, you can bet on it!
