"Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease some cookie sheets. In a mixing bowl, thoroughly cream the shortening, vanilla, and sugars. Add the eggs and beat well. Stir in the peanut butter. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda, and add to the peanut butter mixture, combining thoroughly.
Form into tiny balls with the palm of your hands and place on the cookie sheets. Press each cooking twice with the back of a fork to make a crisscross design. Bake about 8-10 minutes or until firm.".
