One Great Recipe ~ Peanut Butter Cookies

When I was young I use to visit Mrs Spears, the old widow who lived behind me. She taught me to make peanut butter cookies. We would sit and eat cookies & juice while playing cards and she would tell me stories about how she saw the first car that drove into Chicago and about her cup & saucer that was her mother’s that melted together in the Great Chicago Fire. They are memories I will treasure. Makes some cookies take them to an older neighbor. Maybe you will make some memories of your own. Enjoy eating & sharing!
