Big Grandma's Best Peanut Butter Cookies

Bunny's Warm Oven Blog


This is a cherished family recipe I found posted on I love recipes like this. A recipe handed down into a large family and then shared with us. And what a peanut butter cookie recipe it is. I have always loved soft and chewy cookies, no matter what kind it is, it has to be soft and chewy. I've never found a peanut butter cookie recipe that fit that bill until this one.
