Yes, I know the title is in ALL CAPS! That's because this recipe finally helped me bake the PERFECT peanut butter cookies! I remember making them before and they would always burn or come out all crazy! Remind me to post the fabulous oatmeal raisin cookie recipe too...I finally nailed that one too!!


3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup of Crisco Shortening
1 1/4 cups of firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon of salt
3/4 teaspoon of baking soda



Heat oven to 375. Place sheets of foil on the countertop for cooling your cookies. I never realized how much this played a part. Combine peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Add egg and continue to beat until smooth. In another bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda - then add to creamed mixture on low speed until mixed. Drop heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly in crisscross pattern with the tines of a fork. Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to foil to cool completely.

By far the BEST recipe for these cookies that I've EVER tried!!
