Big Grandma's Best Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by LiisaN

This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!

Great! I used butter instead of Crisco because I was too lazy to go to the store and they turned out beautifully.
