Peanut Butter Cookies Or Bust

Peanut Butter Cookies
One my favorites cookies has to be peanut butter cookies. There are some good ready-made peanut butter cookies on the market. However, I'm partial to home made peanut butter cookies. In my search on the internet for peanut butter cookie recipes, I found there are as many different recipes for peanut butter cookies as there are cooks.

Peanut butter, sugar and 1 egg seem to be the basics. From there, it's whatever you feel like adding for your taste. 
Here is a recipe that, I feel, has all you need for basic peanut butter cookies. Enjoy!

JIF® Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies
* 1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
* 1/2 cup Butter Flavor CRISCO® Stick
* 3 tablespoons milk
* 1 tablespoon vanilla
* 1 egg
* 1 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
* 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
* 3/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place sheets of foil on countertop for cooling cookies.

2. Combine brown sugar, JIF® peanut butter, shortening, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Add egg. Beat just until blended.

3. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.

4. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly in crisscross pattern with tines of fork.

5. Bake one baking sheet at a time for 7-8 minutes or until set and just beginning to brown. Do not over-bake. Cook 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to foil to cool completely.
