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.

I just made these cookies and they turned out great! My niece loves them and It's so simple that the kids can help you! I will be making these again. P.S. My dough was not firm enough to roll into balls but they still turned out great!

My dough was also not firm enought to roll into balls. I just put rounded tablespoons of the dough on the cookie sheet, sprinkled with colored sugar & baked. They were fluffy & tasty! And so far ... the kids like them! I also doubled the recipe, but I am not going to get 8 DOZEN ... then again, when making cookies I don't think I EVER get the cookie count I am supposed to! LoL

The cookies are very very yummy. The recipe was not firm enough to roll into balls. I didn't want to add any more flour as I was afraid I would change the consistency of the cookie. I sprinkled sugar on top and then mashed them down. They turned out very good.

These have great flavor, but for some reason my dough wasn't thick enough to form into balls and flatten with a fork. Oh well, they still turned out delicious.
