I got this recipe from my first mother in law. I am sure you will love these cookies as much as I have. If I wouldn't eat any of the cookie dough, I think I might get 3 dozen cookies :) See if you can!

How to Make Peanut Butter Cookie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F.

    Using a mixer, cream brown sugar, white sugar, shortening, peanut butter and eggs until creamy. Mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a small bowl; mix well. Add 1/2 cup at a time to the dough as you continue to mix the dough. Add vanilla.
  2. Form dough into one inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Stick fork in some flour (to keep from sticking) and criss-cross on top of cookie balls. For soft cookies, bake 12 to 13 minutes. Let cool on cooking sheet for 5 minutes (or they will fall apart) to set. For crunchier, harder cookies, bake 15 minutes. Let set as above before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
  3. Note: This last time I baked these cookies, I used extra crunchy Jiff and next time I will add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more peanut butter to account for the peanuts in it. The cookies are still good... but could be a bit better. My first time using extra crunchy. Crunchy was still ok to use 1 cup.
