"Grandma Van Dusens' Peanut Butter Cookies
Christmas is always busy making some of our favorite cookies and candies.
We used to make 10-12 different cookies and 6 or so in candies to be delivered to our neighbors and friends but as the years have passed.
As the years have passed our kids have grown and moved to their own homes in different states so we know longer bake as many cookies as possible.
We still always manage to bake Grandma Van Dusen Peanut Butter Cookies which is our families favorite cookie!
