Peanut Butter Cookies


I know, I know, it's not Monday,  so I'm really, really late with my post this week, Luckily, I'm remembering now and not putting it up tomorrow. Luckily, I have stash of pictures of stuff I've cooked all ready to go that just need typed up in a post and I don't have to bake something before I can get a new post up. Life with two kids is busy.

I really love peanut butter cookies. I don't make them very often, which is probably a good thing for my waistline. I know this from experience. I used to work at a Mrs. Fields in the mall and between the peanut butter cookies and the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies any healthy eating habits I had were doomed.  Anyway, this is recipe for peanut butter cookies that I grew up on. These cookies are especially great when they are warm and fresh, right out of the oven so I'll make up a batch of dough and keep it in the fridge and just bake up half a dozen at a time in the toaster oven. It certainly makes the cookies last longer than if I baked the whole batch at once and ate them all in one afternoon.

Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup peanutbutter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
