    Rachel, you did a fantastic job with the post and the cookies. While I always look forward to the columns with Lovina, this was so enjoyable. Keep it up and thanks for a great recipe. It is snowing here today and tomorrow, so maybe I will make these, too.

    I just made some peanut butter cookies on Monday. The difference between your recipe and mine is:
    I use a cup and a half of brown sugar and a half cup of white sugar, I also use butter, but I use a natural crunchy peanut butter and use a mixture of sea salt and brown sugar to roll them in before baking. Really yummy.

      Hi Gert,
      Rolling the cookies in sea salt and brown sugar sounds good, I’ll have to try that next time!

    I have Lovina’s peanut butter cookie recipe. It is definately a favorite with my children and grandchildren. It has the texture of a shortbread cookie. I must try this new recipe also. It looks yummy. Thank You , Rachel

    Hi Rachel. Your cookies looked beautiful. When I started reading the recipe, yuck, came to mind at the lard. I know I would be able to taste that in those cookies. I saw you substituted and I would too. Sorry you got alot of snow, but so thankful it missed us in northern MI. Have a blessed weekend.
