My mother once accidentally made lemon peanut butter cookies.

Make these instead.

  1. Lemon peanut butter = skunk cookies… You need to know this. I had a basic batter and was adding various flavorings. I accidentally added the peanut butter to the already lemon flavored batter. The result was totally unexpected. A very good looking cookie that tasted like peanut butter, BUT it smelled like skunk. Yes, skunk. We dubbed them skunk cookies and… someone did actually eat them all. It is one mistake I will never repeat…Yikes!!!
