      For anyone who read my comments on these need to know there obviously is no peanut butter in these cookies. They are, however, very, very good. (I got mixed up with another recipe; senior moment, sorry!) I intend to make them again and again.

      I bookmarked this recipe a long time ago and am just now getting down to making them. I am eating one of these delicious cookies as I write. They are lovely, with a rich old fashioned flavour that makes me think of grandmothers, calico aprons, porch swings and lazy hound dogs. They turned out perfect! I sprinkled them with demerara sugar before baking. I will be making these often. Thanks for a great recipe.
