Peanut Butter Cookies

These are truly the best Peanut Butter Cookies you will ever eat!!!  I got this recipe off the back of a jar of Jif peanut butter...  you can seriously use any brand of peanut butter as well as any brand of shortening and flour.  I have used it with butter cubes as well and the cookies turn out just fine.  I think the secret here is the brown sugar, these cookies are just so moist and delicious. 

INGREDIENTS:3/4 cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter

1/2 stick Crisco® Baking Sticks All-Vegetable Shortening

Or 1/2 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening

1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 large egg

1 3/4 cups Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:1.HEAT oven to 375°F. Combine peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Add egg. Beat just until blended.

2.COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2-inches apart onto greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly in a crisscross pattern with tines of fork.

3.BAKE one baking sheet at a time 7 to 8 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to cooling racks to cool completely.

Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!!
