In fact there has never been another day, and probably will not be another to follow. But this Friday is that one day in my lifetime, so I figured Shannon deserved some Peanut Butter cookies before he headed off to the Dominican Republic to salvage millions of dollars worth of treasure!
He's a boat captain, who's vessel has been contracted to take a the recovery team down south and help them to haul up the goods. He has such a fabulous life! I'm his favorite ex-girlfriend who loves to bake, making his life that much more fabulous! He has been stuck down in Miami for weeks waiting to set out, and I've been promising him cookies the whole time. So it was time to put out and bake this boy some of his favorites.
I like my peanut butter cookies thin and crispy, and although I've tried others, the recipe my mom used when I was a child is still my favorite! The recipe dates back as far as my moms mom, so I'm a third generation baker using this one! I'm passing it on, as all good recipes should be!
