    1. My mom makes those!!! Although I don’t think hers use peanut butter. They’re more like fluffy sugar cookies.

      They’re delicious!

    2. Hi, Kristi!! These look really yummy. You know, I haven’t made this type of cookie since I was a teenager. Thanks for the recipe. I’m going to print it out and save it for when the baking mood strikes. 🙂
