Ruth's Peanut Butter Cookies
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
3 servings
This is my mom's recipe that she has been using since she was first married 60 years ago. I have searched thru all of the popular recipes here and this one is just a bit different.....most use only brown sugar or have both sugars but then don't use both baking powder and baking soda. I've never had these cookies turn out wrong and they freeze so well. Whether they get reviewed or not, I know I'll be making them for years to come and now I know they are safe here.
