These peanut butter cookies are delicious and big on peanut butter flavor! Serve with a glass of milk on the side… I bet you can’t eat just one!
Before we moved and built our new home we lived on a wonderful street with the sweetest neighbors. My husband had recently undergone a big knee surgery and I was busy being his nurse. One of our awesome neighbors, Cindy, surprised us with a platter of delicious peanut butter cookies. They were awesome! When I returned the platter I told her how much we enjoyed the cookies and that I would love her recipe.
A couple weeks later Cindy knocked on our door with a package in her hand. Rather than writing down her recipe on a recipe card, Cindy bought me the same cookbook as hers, which happened to be from 1968 when she got married. Very cool. She even filled it with sweet notes on their favorite meals and how she had tweaked the peanut butter cookie recipe.
I was so touched.
When I was unpacking my cookbooks, I pulled out my vintage Betty Crocker cookbook and relived my fond memory of Cindy and her genuine kindness. It’s all about the little things, this life.
A big hug to Cindy, these peanut butter cookies are for you!
Here’s the recipe, which I always double. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! They really are delicious!
