    That is like my mother’s recipe. My husband would love these.

    I make peanut butter cookies all the time and use a meat pounder to flatten them. My sister used a meat pounder many years ago in 4-H to make very original marks on top of the cookies (and they went to the Indiana State Fair). My children and grandchildren (including the boys) love making the marks with the “pounder”!

    I clipped this recipe from Lovina’s column some time ago. They are very good, I always double the recipe 🙂

    The PNW is expecting a lot of snow tonight and tomorrow with school most likely out. This will mean spending time baking these cookies with my young granddaughter. She likes to bake cookies.

    Question: I got a recipe from our weekly newspaper called Fudge-Topped Brownies. It was put in by The Amish cook, in Middletown, Ohio. Her first name is Lovina.
    The recipe calls for two cups of sugar and one cup of flour.
    I wondered if it was printed wrong, and should be one cup of sugar and two cups of flour. If you can help me I would really appreciate it. Thank you, Linda Ruthrauff

      Linda – Welcome to amishcookonline…I am the editor of the column, based in Middletown, so hello neighbor. Yes, that recipe is correct…lots of sugar, but that is right..so make them and enjoy!

      Hi Linda, I have a recipe for brownies that is very similar. It calls for 2 1/4 cups of sugar and 1 1/3 cups of flour in it. I’ve made them for years and they always turn out right so I imagine your recipe is correct. Try them and I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
