Peanut-Butter Cookies

Great cookie for kids. They like the crisscross pattern and peanut butter taste. I use smooth peanut butter but you can also use chunky if you like the peanut bits in them.



  1. Cream shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  2. Stir in peanut butter.
  3. Sift together flour, soda and salt.
  4. Stir into creamed mixture.
  5. Drop by rounded teaspoons on ungreased cooky sheet.
  6. Press with back of floured fork to make crisscross.
  7. Bake at 350' about 10 minutes or till light brown.
  8. Makes about 5 dozen.
