How to Make Peanut Butter Cookie
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
