The name of the recipe says it all. While it is my description of these cookies, it is also the actual name of the recipe that was printed in a small booklet of recipes that came out of a bag of Gold Medal Flour at least 40 years ago. Tried and true, this is the only peanut butter cookie recipe my mother ever made, and it is the only recipe I will use. Prepared as described below, the cookies are soft, yet crispy.
