Chewy and Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies apparently came from the back of the Crisco container at one time. All I know is they are  delicious and addicting!

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 butter flavored shortening (I love the Crisco sticks!)
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. milk
1 1/2 Tbsp. Vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 flour
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
small bowl of white sugar for rolling.

Combine shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat in the egg.

Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture. Mix until blended.

Roll into heaping teaspoon sized balls (I use a cookie scoop) then roll in white sugar. place on baking sheet 2 inches or so apart. Flatten slightly in a crisscross pattern with a fork.

Bake 10 minutes or until just set and slightly brown. DO NOT OVER BAKE. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Move to racks to cool completely.



  1. Did you see The Help? I thought it was funny how the ladies LOVED Crisco! :) Shortnening of any kind really does make the best peanut butter cookie!

    1. Yes, I did! Fabulous book and movie! I can't tell you how glad I am these are no longer in my house, I couldn't stay out of them!!

  2. Great minds really do think alike: I made these same cookies this week! I hadn't made PB cookies in forever. They are such a treat. I love the milk bottle and cute straw, too!

    1. That is funny! My son doesn't like them so I hadn't made for a long time either. I ate way too many!!

  3. Peanut butter cookies are my favorite :) And I also have a really hard time just stopping at one.

    1. They are addicting! ;) Thank you for stopping by Monica!
