On Thursday I subbed at Medlin Middle School. Down the hall one of the classes was baking peanut butter cookies. All day I smelled the delicious smell of cookies baking. So I couldn't resist pulling out my Grandmother's peanut butter cookie recipe and baking a batch for next week's Crop. This is a fun recipe to make with kids. They love squishing down the balls with a fork. I hope your family enjoys this very old family favorite as much as mine does.
Peanut Butter CookiesFrom the kitchen of: Edith Boatright
Makes approximately 9 dozen cookies
4 cups sugar
2 cups Crisco
2 cups smooth Peanut Putter
5 teaspoons vanilla
5 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons soda
3 1/2 teaspoons salt
Cream together sugar and Crisco.
Add eggs and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix well.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Scoop cookie dough with a cookie scoop.
Roll into a ball and place on cookie sheet.
Smash balls using fork or cookie press.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool on cookie rack.
Note: I doubled and tweaked this recipe. The original recipe makes only about 4 1/2 dozen cookies. The photo of the ingredients is a single batch - for the crop I baked a double batch.
Walk with God!
