Aunt JoJo's Peanut Butter Cookies

Aunt JoJo made the Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever!

Aunt JoJo (pronounced with the accent on the second syllable, typical New Orleans style) had 13 children, so her house was the party house.

She lived in a shotgun house with 2 rooms, one bathroom, and the kitchen.

We could always count on treats after school. We did not realize that these were cheaper than chocolate chip.

Those were the good ole days, no money, but a lot of fun.
