    HokiesMom's Note:

    This is my mom's recipe that she has been using since she was first married 60 years ago. I have searched thru all of the popular recipes here and this one is just a bit different.....most use only brown sugar or have both sugars but then don't use both baking powder and baking soda. I've never had these cookies turn out wrong and they freeze so well. Whether they get reviewed or not, I know I'll be making them for years to come and now I know they are safe here.

      I got a blast back in time with these cookies. They tasted just like the ones my Grandma made. I made them as written and we loved them. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

      These were good but a little dry BUT I used an unsweetend PB so I think that is why. I need to get regular PB for baking LOL I added some mini chocolate chips to half the batter. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
