      Note: about 1 minute before they are done it helps to lift and bang the sheet on the rack and turn it.

      Once again, a back to basics recipe proves to be the best. I found these to be the perfect peanut butter cookies. Unlike other reviewers, I used all shortening (Crisco butter-flavored) but followed recipe to the T, even banging the sheets on the rack! A nicely crisp, perfectly round cookie, and not flat as one reviewer experienced. Thanks, tomsawyer--my search for the perfect p/b cookie ends here.

      This recipe is really close to the one I normally use so I tried it out. These taste wonderful, but I must say that even after chilling the dough overnight even, these cookies are way too flat. Its almost like they melt. Maybe its because I used butter? But it does say margarine or butter. I was a little aggravated because I usually make the best pb cookies. I think I will add less shortening next time. Flavor a 5 appearance a 2
