PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
3/4 Cup peanut butter 1/2 Cup shortening (chilled) 1 1/4 Cups firmly packed brown sugar 1 Egg 3 Tbsp. milk 1 Tbsp. vanilla 1 3/4 Cups white all purpose flour 3/4 Tsp. baking soda 3/4 Tsp. salt
DIRECTIONS Preheat Oven to 375 F. Cream peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, egg, milk and vanilla in a large bowl at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture above slowly and beat at low speed until mixed thoroughly. Drop from a spoon onto non greased baking sheets. I pushed down with a fork to ensure the crispy texture. Bake at 375 F for 8 minutes until set and lightly brown. These are very similar to the chewy chocolate chip cookies for me as I take them out when they just start to brown as I don’t want them to dry out and become crumby. Cool slightly and set on cooling rack. ENJOY!
