12 Days of Cookies "Peanut Butter Cookies" Day 6

Ummm, it's looking like the "12 Days of Cookies" is turning into something like the "20 Days..."
What can I say?
"Life" is full.
Though I made these last year on "Day 5", it wasn't a recipe from the greatest cookbook in the world...
My Great Aunt Anna Mary (nickname: "GA") compiled this cookbook that she gifted me when Sugar and I flew out West a few years back to meet her and Great Uncle Bob, run the Phoenix Half Marathon, and tour the Grand Canyon for his traditional birthday trip.  She's a gem and I love her dearly. 
It's my "go to" for just about everything.  GA's mastery of the English language and writing skills shines through this marvelous work.
Did I mention these cookies were outstanding??  Been a long time since I ate a cookie made with Crisco.
