Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies are tender, chewy, and delicious! This is an old-fashioned peanut butter cookie recipe that I got from my Betty Crocker Cookbook. I have had this cookbook since I first got married and it has a lot of great recipes.

One thing that sets this recipe apart from other peanut butter cookie recipes is that you use half shortening and half butter. I think it gives the cookie a nice chewy texture.

I have made these cookies around Christmas, as a nice compliment to the other traditional Christmas cookies. I also made them for my husband’s bosses on Boss’s Day, and out of the three different cookies I made, these were the favorite.

They are not overly sweet and I like that. They are also a sturdy cookie, so they travel well. This makes them great to send with the kids or take on a picnic. I am going to try them with mini chocolate chips next time, because I think that sounds really good.
