These peanut butter cookies are a great soft cookies. I developed this recipe with my youngest son when I was home schooling him. He is now 21 years old and we still like cooking together. We did a mother/son baking contest at the New Mexico State Fair that Crisco was having. We won second place. Try making these irresistible cookies with one of your loved one. Baking with a loved one can be fun and a memory that last a life time. Remember what you do with your heart n soul is made with love.
