Outstanding basic peanut butter cookie recipe! I used regular Crisco for my shortening and they turned out perfect. Only thing, I think the yield stated is extremely high; you would have to make very tiny cookies to hit that number. Definitely one of the best general peanut butter cookie recipes I've tried!
