Nana's Peanut Butter Blossoms

Every Christmas that I can remember, Mom (aka Nana) would set aside at least one Saturday morning for baking cookies. These always made the cut. As one of my favorite memories, the traditional Cookie Days live on in my kitchen as well.

This really is one hell of a cookie. Trust me, unless you have a nut allergy, you can't go wrong with the sweet goodness of the following recipe. Enjoy!
