Amish Peanut Butter Cookies

SigniturePeanut Butter Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the peanut butter, flour, baking soda, and salt. The batter will be thick and should be stirred vigorously with a wooden spoon or kneaded with your hands in the bowl until everything is thoroughly mixed. Chill the dough for 1 hour (I did not do this because I'm impatient..ssshhhh)

Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Shape the dough into balls and place 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Press each cookie with a fork to make criss cross pattern. Bake 12-14 minutes.

This is another recipe from the Amish Cook's Baking Book. Yes I'm having fun with this book.
