"I've never made cookies like this, but when I found this recipe in the 1954 Settlement Cookbook my mom gave me when I went I got my first apartment, I decided I need to give it a try. This looks like a great substitute for buying grocery rolled dough and cooking slices. The book just says it makes a large quantity...so I'm guessing at the yield. Refrigerator time not included in prep or cook time."

These cookies came out very light and puffy.. the peanut flavor is subtle and not very sweet, but very delish... WIll be making them again in the future for Christmas
