DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
  • Cream together the shortening and peanut butter.
  • Blend in sugars gradually into the shortening mixture.
  • Add the well beaten eggs and mix well.
  • In three portions, alternately add flour mixture, milk and vanilla (I'm trying to say add a third of the total of flour, milk and vanilla then mix then add the next third of each and mix and then once more add them together and mix).
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) onto lightly sprayed cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly brown - do not overbake.
  • Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
