This special Peanut Butter Cookie recipe was given to my Great Grand Mother and passed to my Grand Mother Rose who gave it to my Mother Betty who then gave it to Me Beverly. I am passing it on to my daughter Bonnie then to my loving Grand daughter EMILY. Hopping it will keep traveling through our generations for a long time. Hope you enjoy it as we do.
