Mom’s cookies now being made by the grandkids

BY ALICIA ROSS

When Mom would bake a batch of her peanut butter cookies, the whole neighborhood would flock to the house. Now she boxes them up and sends them to the grandkids. I wonder if the post office workers can smell the deliciousness inside that plain brown box. I doubt it, because the alluring aroma would surely have them breaking the package open for a nibble.

I have such fond memories of baking these cookies alongside my mom, mixing and stirring and getting to lick a spoonful of peanut butter while the cookies baked. Then, when my girls were young, this is one of the recipes I used to teach them how to bake.

Even though they get their “midterm” box of Grandma Gayle’s peanut butter cookies, they both have the recipe and bake them for their friends. It’s like she is still baking for a whole group of kids, even though we now live in different cities.

If you’d like to share a childhood recipe that has been passed down, email me the recipe (no attachments, please) at alicia@kitchenscoop.com. I’ll pick a few to share around the holidays.
