Recipe: Peanut Butter Cookies


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour


Cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg, peanut butter, salt, soda and vanilla. Add flour. Form the dough into small balls and place on cookie sheet (if cookie sheet is not non-stick, grease or use parchment paper). Press down with the back of a fork to flatten. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375°.


I confess that I grew up eating peanut butter cookies made with Crisco. You may use that, or margarine, in place of the butter if you prefer.
