My brother-in-law has a reputation for loving peanut butter. The first Christmas after our wedding, I packed up a tin of homemade cookies to send out to my now expanded family. Garry's reaction to these cookies was "WOW." Since then, I send the standard mixed cookie tin to his family, and a separate tin with a dozen peanut butter sandwich cookies just for him. They are ethereally light, crispy and mmmmm-inducing. Make them small -- they are very rich. I use a teaspoon sized scoop. The recipe came to me from a friend of a friend, so many years ago I can't even recall. It is easily the most popular of the 20 or so types I make. - MrsWheelbarrow
