These yummy cookies were always a favorite growing up. Taken from the Joy of Cooking, my mom used to make these harder by adding extra flour. For a softer, chewier cookie, use the amount noted in the recipe.

I made these today. I only got 38 small cookies, but the flavour was great. The peanut butter craving was exceptionaly satisfied. Thanx for a fun recipe.
