If there was one recipe we needed nana to write down before she past, it was this one! Such a treasure!

 


Ingredients:


3 cups of all-purpose flour

3 room-temperature eggs

1 cup of creamy peanut butter

1 cup of shortening

1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup of granulated sugar

2 teaspoons of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of salt

Instructions:


Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a big bowl, blend the shortening, peanut butter, and both sugars until smooth and creamy.

Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition for a seamless blend.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together.

Slowly incorporate the dry mix into the creamy blend, stirring to form a consistent cookie dough.

Spoon out rounded tablespoons of dough onto your baking sheets, leaving space between each.

Press a fork across each dough ball, creating a classic crisscross pattern and flattening them a bit.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges turn a light golden hue.

Let the cookies cool briefly on the sheets, then move them to racks for complete cooling.
