I originally found this recipe about 30 years ago on the back of a can of Crisco shortening. They are by far the best peanut butter cookies that I've ever tasted. They're very moist and delicious. This recipe is easily doubled if you need to make a large amount for a cookie exchange or other occasion. I made some recently for a bake sale and I didn't bring any home! I hope y'all enjoy them.
