      I have made this recipe many times, and through tweaking each time, I have found that I receive the best results by using a whole cup of peanut butter, half Crisco, half butter, and decrease the amount of salt used to to 1/2 teaspoon. These cookies are wonderful---soft, chewy and not too sweet. A favorite of my family.

      I just love this recipe, thank-you for having it on this site! I know that Jif has the recipe on the back of their peunut butter jars, but I had a different brand in the house, so I didn't have the recipe.
      I followed this recipe to a "T" and it turned out spectacular, "like usual" there is just something about using crisco that just makes these cookies amazing. I prefer baking time 7 minutes, the cookies are completely moist at that time.
      Wonderful recipe!
