  1. This sounds delicious! I love the peanut butter to sugar ratio, nothing better than a good old fashioned 1:1 ratio of such yummy ingredients.

  2. I tone down the sugar and put a little honey in :)

  3. these look amazing. I love a good peanut butter cookie

  4. Mmm, me too! I think I'll have hubby make a batch this evening heh

  5. I raised 5 children and this recipe was a favorite. Of course, most any cookie was a "favorite" with the kiddie and I made a lot of them. But I always felt that using peanut butter in goodies inserted some protein that make the treat actually beneficial to them and not just a pleasant treat. It saddens me to know that peanut butter is removed from school menus because of allergies. The insertion of peanut butter years ago into the school lunch programs and into the pantries of the underprivileged did MUCH to bring protein into children's lives and to promote nutritious eating.

  7. I understand it though. Sadly, nut allergies are so dangerous! My aunt is highly allergic and being in any contact has nearly killed her so I understand the caution but honestly, if my child were SO allergic I don't think I could personally send my child to a public school and take the risk!
