Grandma’s Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Cream shortening and sugars. Add peanut butter, eggs, vanilla and dry ingredients. Stir until well blended.
Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in flour. Turn fork 90 degrees and make another fork print for the design. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until brown. Make 6-8 dozen.
Note: To make all your baking super easy and quick, make sure you have a baking center in you kitchen where all the baking supplies are stored in one place. Then you won’t have to move all over the kitchen to get ingredients and put them back. You can do everything one smooth movement, taking out, using, and putting back all of the ingredients in one quick motion.
I even go so far as to have 5 shakers of salt in my small (20×20 foot) kitchen. I keep one salt shaker with baking ingredients, two others on the stove (different sized tops for different recipes), one with my spices and one on the table. That may seem excessive, but when you have Fibromyalgia you don’t have energy to waste going back and forth for ingredients.
Baking gets frustrating when you have to walk all over the kitchen from cabinet to cabinet getting ingredients, so keep all your baking ingredients in one place.
