My mom was brought up in a Mennonite church in South Dakota. Her family church published a cookbook back in the 60's. In that cookbook are these amazing peanut butter cookies. I wrote in the front of the cookbook that it will be willed to me. I have made many batches over the years. They are one of a kind.
