Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

3/4 c
skippy peanut butter(or any quality peanut butter)
1/2 c
crisco shortening
1 1/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed(i use light brown sugar)
3 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1
egg(large)
1 3/4 c
ap flour
3/4 tsp
baking soda
3/4 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350*
2
In large bowl,combine peanut butter,shortening,brown sugar,milk,and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until well blended.
3
Add Egg and beat JUST until blended.
4
Combine flour, baking soda,and salt.
5
Add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture.
6
Mix JUST until blended on low speed.
7
I roll the dough into small balls about the size of a walnut (but you can just drop by rounded tablespoons).
8
Use a fork dipped frequently in either water or granulated sugar to flatten dough slightly making a criss-cross pattern with the tines of the fork.
9
Bake one baking sheet at a time for 7-10 minutes(depending on your oven it varies)...watch them though because you want them to JUST set...never more than SLIGHTLY BEGINNING to brown.
