Peanut Butter cookie recipe
On my 14th birthday, my mother gave me a loose leaf notebook...several packs of paper...and handed me her recipe book.
This started me on my love for cooking.
With the COVID-19 count going up...we need a "comfort desert."
This simple--classic--peanut butter cookie recipe is one of the first that I copied from mom's recipe book.
Make a batch now...and then make more in about a week and a half, and make these simple cookies a part of your Thanksgiving celebration.
I recommend that you double this recipe.
Peanut Butter cookies
1 &1/2 C flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1/2 C shortening (I use butter)
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 C peanut butter (I will double the pb, because it's yummier)
Combine all ingredients in mixer.
Roll dough into balls, and flatten with fork.
Bake 375 degrees / about 12 minutes (watch your oven).
A double recipe makes about 45 cookies. Some for now, and some for later.
