Grandma Judge’s Peanut Butter Cookies


Nothing like stacks of home made peanut butter cookies!

This has to be one of my favorite recipes, these cookies come out light and crispy and you’ll be grabbing a glass of cold milk to dunk them in before long.

Here’s the ingredients:

1 c shortening

1 c sugar

1 c brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 c flour

1 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda

1 c peanut butter

1. Cream the shortening and sugars well, then add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

2. In another medium size bowl, put the flour, baking soda and salt and mix. I use a whisk to mix it together. Now add it to the creamed mixture.

3. Add the peanut butter and mix well.

4. Put balls on ungreased cookie sheet and squish gently with a fork.

5. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

If the dough is a little dry, just kind of push the dough together more than roll it. Sometimes I put dough in the refrigerator to bake the next day, these will get just a bit dry but still work fine.

pressing with a fork

Gently press with a fork after putting on the cookie sheet. If the dough is a bit dry (see above) then you can use your fingers to gently press the sides of the dough in as you squish.

Ahh…excuse me while I go pour that glass of cold milk! Click on the note card I created below, it has the recipe printed on it so you can cut it off and have a glossy photo recipe card! In my Zazzle shop.
