Peanut Butter "Snicky Doodies"

If you think kids and pregnant women are the only ones that love snicker doodles aka "snicky doodies", then you are wrong. Try sending some peanut butter snicker doodles to our men and women in the war and you will multiples messages and requests for more. The request for cookies I get from my husband from his friends usually makes me laugh. I can only imagine how a home made cookie in the middle of nowhere can make any place feel a little more like home. Please try these cookies and think of how many people you can make smile with a little love and some cookies. Enjoy!
