Why I Love This Recipe

I use to make these all the time when I was a kid. I had to hunt for the recipe in an old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. For some reason the recipe isn't in any of the new cookbooks.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup of shortening (for fluffier cookies, use 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup soft butter)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs
4 tablespoons milk
3 cups flour
dash of salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup of peanut butter


Directions

Preheat oven 350'


Cream shortening, sugars, vanilla and milk. Add eggs, beat thoroughly. Stir in peanut butter. Sift dry ingredients; stir into mixture (i find that by adding 1/3 of the flour mixture at a time, it mixes easier)


Form into tiny balls, place on an ungreased cookie sheet. With a fork dipped in water, press onto ball to flatten from left to right, then press again from top to bottom, making the crisscross design on the top of the cookie.
