    These bad boys won me a blue ribbon in the county fair when I was a teenager. The recipe is from a 1988 Ladies' Home Journal, and they're darn tasty.

      These were the very first peanut butter cookies I made years ago! They are very good and simple. I still go back to this recipe and make them now and again.
