Oh she didn’t make these? That’s okay, mine didn’t either. As a grandma myself, I’m starting a new tradition!
This month Fill The Cookie Jar is dusting off Grandma’s cookie recipes and sharing them with you.

I’ve already shared our family recipes for Velvet Cookies

    A girl after my own heart Cindy. I also decided that my being a Grandma counted so I made a recipe that I wanted and joined you in starting a tradition. Peanut butter cookies are one of my faves and these are great lunchbox cookies as well.
