I need a good peanut butter cookie recipe

My store stopped making them.  So naturally this must be a sign I will have to make my own.  It pains me to no end.

My peanut butter cookie must be crispy ... contain NO chocolate chips... and have some chunky peanuts in it.  And have a sweet salty taste. I guess I'm a whacko.... but I really dislike chocolate chips .. in my cookies.  Same goes for another fav Oatmeal cookies...they gotta be crispy and tasty...don't you go and put raisins in them or I will make your life miserable. 

Lord knows there are 5,789 trillion recipes on the internet but just for a change...just for once...good effin grief.... show me a recipe where I have all the ingredients in the house.  If I have go out and buy it ... the thrill is gone.  I'm kinda of a spur of the moment kinda gal ... so if you have a recipe that calls for chunky peanut butter, flour, baking soda or powder, butter, sugar or canola oil I got that stuff.

And yeah I like Macaroons.....I could marry them.

Don't get me started on shortbread cookies with little caramel chips in them.

Funny thing is... I never ate cookies ..ever. Until this year.  I must have one or two after supper.  It's the law.  Now I'm getting picky.  

My mom never made cookies as I remember. But she made the best sheet apple pie ever. I think the recipe is in  Mennonite Girls can cook

My husband is calling....we are putting up shelving in the basement for all the junk (important stuff) that is still sitting in the garage.  It's always nice to have your junk....neat looking.  BTW I just found three items I have been looking for forever....yes they are kinda junky....but man it was good to see them again.

Balonie...yours until IDK!

I just figured out I might only have about 10 years of my life left.  I'm 67.  That means I have about 10 more Christmases to live.   Maybe.

You know.... I never gave this shit a thought. 

Until the new babies who are now born and expecting in my family .  I will never see them grow up.  Will they ever remember me? 

I can't believe there will be a world without me watching it.  How can that happen?...because I thought the world happened when I came into it.

I'm still shocked at my revelation.
