Peanut Butter Cookies

{ Challenge 12 : Recipe 21/100 }
Peanut Butter Cookies

Blogging from bed today and feeling a little bit under the weather. I cooked these cookies a month ago and just realized I didn't blog about it.

This recipe is from my 1959 Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book so it has a classic, feel good, old fashioned taste to it... very moist, addicting, and wonderful. It's fairly easy to make and a lot of fun.

The cook book gives two versions of the recipe, which are included below:

Peanut Butter Cookies
By Betty Crocker

Mix Thoroughly:
1/2 cup shoft shortening (half butter)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg

Sift together and stir in:
1 1/4 cups sifted GOLD MEDAL Flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Chill dough. Roll into ball size of large walnuts. Place 3" apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Flatten with fork dipped in flour ... crisscross...  Bake until set... but not hard.

Temperature: 375° (quick mod. oven).
Time: Bake 10 to 12 min.
Amount: About 3 doz. 2 1/2" cookies.

** For the Honey Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe: Follow the recipe above - except use only 1/4 cup shortening, and in place of brown sugar use 1/2 cup honey.
