My Dad's Peanut Butter Cookies

Roda Laser


When I was growing up, my dad would bake cookies and allow my sister and I to "help". I don't know where my dad got the recipe to begin with, but he tweaked it to perfection. These are the best peanut butter cookies we have ever eaten. Our entire family loves them. Hope you do too.
