ingredients

directions

  • Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg in large bowl.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls.
  • Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped into sugar (water works well too).
  • Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Note: about 1 minute before they are done it helps to lift and bang the sheet on the rack and turn it.
  • Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Other note: you can use all butter/margarine to replace the shortening and probably would work vice versa as well.

    This is my go to recipe for PBC. I do use all butter. I also use Extra Crunchy peanut butter ( this makes it more peanutty). You do have to add a little more peanut butter though, to make up the fat content difference that the peanuts pieces displace. But just as is, it is still great.

    I am looking for the double peanut butter cookies from Betty Crocker COOKIE & CANDIES Receipe Cookbook "Teen Winner Section". This is close to the same except it uses Crisco and rolls into logs, chills, then slices thin and spreads peanut butter between 2 slices, then bakes. This recipe seems close to the ingredients but I want to make sure the ingredients are the same

    Delicious! Recipe (for me) made 15 regular sized cookies and are really easy.

    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.
