grandma's peanut butter cookies

My grandma made these peanut butter cookies every year at Christmastime.  They are delicious!  She always used Skippy peanut butter and that's what was in our pantry while growing up and that's what is in my pantry now.  Some things never change.  I am baking like crazy and plan to send all of Grandma's favorites to my family just in time for Christmas.
