      Thanks Bonnie – this is my husband’s recipe (his mom used to make them for him) and he loves them – it brings back many wonderful childhood memories for him! 🙂

    Mmm…. Peanut Butter cookies….. I love peanut butter cookies and I look forward to trying out your recipe 🙂 Of course, every time I think about baking them, it reminds me of the time when one of my old roommates accidentally put in 1 cup of salt instead of sugar. We tried so hard to make her feel better by eating the cookies but in the end, it was just too salty for us 🙂

  28. These sounds like they would make amazing ice cream sandwiches, too!


    I like the idea of the refrigerate and slice.

    I’m definitely copying this recipe to my save file!

    Thanks for a perfectly delicious link this week.
