    *Parsley*'s Note:

    This is supposedly the recipe for the awesome peanut butter cookies that the East Penn School District cafeterias made from scratch each day when I was in school. With the revamping of the lunch program to promote healthy foods, they discontinued making these cookies sometime in the early 90s. I thought these were the best cookies ever. This makes a lot of cookies. You may need to use your hands near the end of mixing as the dough gets stiff. You can cut this recipe in half, but use 3 eggs.

      This is the cookie I remember when I was in the 1-4th grade. I used all natural peanut butter and it was awesome. This is definitely the only recipe you should use.
