Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies

After many trials, this is the best peanut butter cookie I've tasted. Just a bit different than many of the others but the shortening used does make for a different cookie; crisp and crunchie. As with all hand-formed cookies, kids love to make them.

    This is the best peanut butter cookie recipe I've ever had. I've made these for years courtesy of my 1996 Betty Crocker cookbook. I get rave reviews for these cookies every time I make them. Everyone should have this recipe in their recipe box. Try these, you won't be sorry. I'm happy to see it on here. :)
