    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    That's what the Crisco can calls these cookies. I have always loved Peanut Butter Cookies and always have tried different recipes as they were not quite right. One day, I saw this recipe on the can and thought that I should try it. I'm so glad I did. They are a dropped cookie and then crisscrossed on the top and not a rolled-in-a-ball cookie. I figured out that by rolling them first, they got tough, and dropping them on the cookie sheet keeps them crumbly and good. And, yes, the amount of vanilla is correct.

      This is my favorite Peanut Butter Cookie recipe! Moist and tender on the inside and crispy on the outside... perfection! I sometimes add chopped peanuts and milk chocolate chips... takes to another dimension... yum!

      Thanks Mimi, a good cookie. Quicker to make because they're just dropped and not rolled. I used a small cookie scoop and got 5 dozen. Next time I might try a little more peanut butter. I thought the dough was too soft and added 2 Tblsp more flour, but I don't think it really needs it. Thanks for sharing. Janet
