Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies
This is just your basic peaunt butter cookie recipe. It is the recipe we used in jr. high home ec. class. So it's from about 1977.

Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. crisco
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 t. baking soda
Cream crisco, sugars, & peanut butter until smooth. Beat egg & vanilla & add to creamed mixture. In seperate bowl add the flour, soda, & salt. Add dry ingredients into the creamed mixture & mix well.
Roll into balls & put on ungreased cookie sheet. Use tines of fork to flatten.
Bake at 350 for 5-8 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing.
I love these warm, right out of the oven. I usually double this recipe & it makes a few dozen.
