I didn't really start baking/cooking until I was on my own in the early 70's. I spent a lot of time on the phone with my mom and dad letting them walk me through as I learned to cook over the phone.

That wasn't the only source of help I had, my sister in law gave me my 1st set of cookbooks and that 's where I found the original version of this recipe. This is the first cookie I ever baked and it remains my all time favorite!

A little crunchy on the outside, a nice fruity soft inside and let's not forget that wonderful peanut butter flavor!
