Rainy Days Mean Peanut Butter Cookies Baking in the Oven

It's pouring down rain right now and I have plans for this afternoon, but nothing for this morning and then I remembered. Mom always made cookies on rainy mornings... in the summer at least. Have no idea if she did the same while we were at school... but definitely during the summer. So I think that I will copy the tradition and make peanut butter cookies.

That made me begin to wonder about the history of the cookie and those criss cross marks that were pressed into them. Apparently... they were first mentioned in the  Schenectady Gazette on July 1, 1932. That means that they are even older than that!
