These are unlike any peanut butter cookies you have ever eaten. They literally melt in your mouth and have a creamy, slightly grainy texture that is out of this world. I dare you to try and eat just one!
In electric mixer cream the shortening and peanut butter, then add the brown sugar and beat until well mixed.
Place flour, baking soda, and salt in a sifter and sift into bowl while the beaters are running.
When thoroughly mixed take a small amount (about 1 Tbs.) in your hand and roll into a small ball, then place on greased cookie sheet and, using a fork, slightly flatten the cookies, making a cross pattern with the fork.
Bake on middle rack of oven for 15-20 minutes.
Cool on cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes. Makes approx. 24 cookies
