Ingredients
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375 F
  2. Mix together shortening, peanut butter, vanilla, white sugar, and brown sugar.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating between each egg.
  4. Stir in the dry ingredients.
  5. Roll into small balls (or use a scoop - it's a lot easier!) and "criss cross" them with a fork to flatten them.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, just until lightly browned. Cool on a rack.
