This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!

- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup Butter Flavor Crisco
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (Skippy)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

- 2 teaspoons baking soda
