Personal Notes:
Mom's first cookbook was the 1964 "the NEW Fannie Farmer Boston Cooking School COOK BOOK". She noted all of the recipes she particularly liked. As a kid, I ate many, many dozen of these absolutely delicious cookies! Grandma Rayome's Molasses Cookies were hand written in the book but the Peanut Butter Cookies were Fanny's, with Mom's notation of "Good!".
