Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup shortening (butter flavored preferred by me)

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 2 cups flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoons salt


Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Cream together the shortening, brown and white sugars until smooth; add eggs and vanilla and fully combine. 

Stir in the peanut butter.  Add flour, baking soda, and salt.  Mix  thoroughly but don't overmix. 

Roll into walnut-sized balls and press flat with tines of fork to make a pretty design.

Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until fork comes clean.
