Bea's Peanut Butter Cookies
*You can certainly use creamy peanut butter if you prefer. You can also use butter flavor crisco. I've done this myself.
How to Make Bea's Peanut Butter Cookies
- Cream together the crisco and peanut butter then set aside. * i have used creamy peanut butter. i have also added in chopped pecans in when I couldn't find crunchy or extra crunchy peanut butter. the cookies are good either way.
In a large separate bowl blend flour, both sugars and salt together. Add in milk and vanilla. Gradually add eggs to this mixture. Now add crisco/peanut butter mixture and mix well. Place into a covered bowl and refrigerate for several hours before baking. I have formed the dough
into two logs and wrapped in waxed or parchment paper and placed in the freezer so I could slice them.
- To Bake: Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with foil or parchment paper and spray lightly with Pam. If you have stored in a bowl, drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets and bake at 350 for approximately 8-12 minutes or until lightly brown. If you stored as a log, just slice and place onto cookie sheets. TIP: make sure to
leave enough space between them because they will spread some.
