Mom’s Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies just like Mom used to make #recipe #cookies

My mom was always baking cookies- whether as an after school treat for me or to send in my Dad’s lunch.  I’m pretty sure my Dad’s love language is frozen M&M cookies; and I can’t tell you how many days I came home to fresh, hot from the oven chocolate chip cookies.  I think it’s funny that both my husband and my first born prefer savory to sweet, and neither of them are that impressed to come home to warm cookies.

Let me just tell you, I was redeemed with my youngest though.  Cookie was literally one of Sophia’s first words.  Doesn’t matter what kind, she is my biggest fan.  I have pictures of her sitting in front of the oven just (im)patiently waiting for them to finish baking.  I hope this also means she inherited my love for baking.
