PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES


~ Amy Vallely

3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
3 T. milk
1 T. vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 c. flour
3/4 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla until well blended. Add egg; beat just until blended. Mix dry ingredients separately, then add to wet ingredients. Mix just until blended.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet two inches apart. Flatten slightly and make crisscross pattern with a fork. Bake 7-8 minutes or until set and just beginning to brown. Cool two minutes, then transfer to wire rack.

Makes about three dozen.

Notes: I always transfer them straight to the cooling rack. You can kick these up a notch by tossing some peanut butter chips in them.
