Yum Yum Yummers...

Everything you could ever want in a cookie... oh yes.
Peanut butter, chocolate, and so very soft and chewy. It doesn't get any better than this people.

This is a Crisco recipe I cut out VERY long ago, and keep in my recipe pile... yes pile. I'm not very organized.

We have a bit of a tradition beginning at our house when it comes to baking. It can't happen without Chicken making a mess and irritating helping me. We pull a chair up to the counter and he stirs and pours all the ingredients in. It usually requires a change of clothes and floor sweep after. You do what you gotta do... and I'm a mom. So, I gotta let him destroy help.

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening (or butter/margarine)
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • (I add 1 cup of chocolate chips)

  • Preheat 375F
  • Cream peanut butter, shortening, sugar, egg, milk, vanilla.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture until well blended.

    • Drop by rounded Tbsp onto ungreased baking sheet and press lightly with fork.
    • Bake at 375F for 7-8 mins. (I really watch them. As soon as the tops look golden I pull them out... but we like them REALLY soft and chewy.)

    We're baking cookies and he wants to eat a tomato? Who's kid is this?

    I can barely stand to bake them... they already look so good I could eat them RAW!

    All I need is vanilla ice cream and I'm good to go... alright FINE I'll bake them!

    VOILA!!! Pour milk and serve!
