Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

 

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup shortening (or butter flavored shortening)

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

3 tbsp milk

1 tbsp vanilla

1 egg

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

3/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp baking soda

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add egg. Beat just until blended.

Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (using a cookie scoop works great) 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Flatten slightly in crisscross pattern with tines of fork.

Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to racks to cool completely.
