How to Make THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 350*
  • 2In large bowl,combine peanut butter,shortening,brown sugar,milk,and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until well blended.
  • 3Add Egg and beat JUST until blended.
  • 4Combine flour, baking soda,and salt.
  • 5Add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture.
  • 6Mix JUST until blended on low speed.
  • 7I roll the dough into small balls about the size of a walnut (but you can just drop by rounded tablespoons).
  • 8Use 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.
  • 9Bake 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.
