    These were very nice cookies but I also got about 24 medium sized cookies rather than 36. I also added chocolate chips to half of the dough and they were much nicer as peanut butter choc chip cookies. Surprisingly my hubby enjoyed them more than the kids!

    What can I say...these were gone in no time! 2 Great grandkids and one grand son scarfed them up and gave them a '10'. For some reason (bigger?) I only got 2 dozen. Will make more soon. Thanks for reminding me to make peanut butter cookies!!

    These are straight out of the Betty Crocker Cookbook from the l950's and that's how long ago I started making them - when I was still a kid! I always knew they were great, but didn't know they were prize winners!

    I entered these in our county fair and they won a 3rd place ribbon, however, they still are tasty. Not quite as good as the peanut butter cookies they served when I was in high school, but still good.
