Grandma Moutray’s Peanut Butter Cookies

You’ll make kids and adults happy with a batch of delicious fresh baked cookies-especially as an after school snack.

Going to Grandma’s house is always the best. Especially when Grandma is on the cookie warpath. I loved smelling the delicious scents that accompanied some of my Grandma’s famous cookies. Even if she wasn’t cooking when we showed up, there was always a collection of cookie jars that were always filled with something yummy. A few of the cookie jars played music when you opened them, which meant it was hard to sneak a cookie. When my siblings and I would sleep over, we would try and figure out a way to sneak a cookie without getting caught. We usually failed and would just go to bed. This recipe is one of the favorites, we could often find these in a jar and they are amazing with a tall glass of milk.
