Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients -
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of shortening
1 cup of peanut butter
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups of AP Flour

Preheat the oven to 375.

Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
Cream together the butter and the sugars, once combined add the peanut butter and stir to combine. Add the eggs in one at a time making sure to mix well after each one. Add the vanilla extract and then slowly add in the flour mixture it will look crumbly at times but will work into a very nice looking dough.

Take rounded tablespoons and place on a ungreased baking sheet for 12-15 minutes. I normally just watch until they start to slightly brown on the edges and then I pull them out and move them directly to a cooling rack. I like my cookies chewy not hard though so the time will depends on how you like your cookies.
