Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup Butter (4 oz butter)
1/2 cup Crisco (4 oz)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup White Sugar
2 eggs

Cream together well with beaters

1 tsp Baking Soda
t tsp Salt
1 Tablespoon Vanilla

Cream together Well with beaters

1 cup of Peanut Butter (I prefer a natural peanut butter that is a bit runny but it really doesn't matter)

Cream together well with beaters

2 1/2 cups of flour mix in with beaters also.

Once you have finished making the dough, form it into balls, put on a cookie sheet with or without parchment (remember parchment makes things easier but is not required) and press down and cross hatch with the tines of a fork for the quintessential peanut butter cookie look. Bake in an oven at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes or until done. For a sugary variation once you form the cookies into balls roll them in sugar if you prefer and finish following the recipe. Either way they are great.

  3. Mmmmmmm, I can't wait to make these. Have you read The $64 Tomato? It's a great book about a man's attempt at organic gardening. It has some yummy recipes in it, and there is a website now. I think it's by William Alexander. I have it if you want to read it. Oh! Also, could I please have your German pancake recipe? Danke! Has Kaden convinced you guys to take a nanny along to Hawaii next time? That was the mission I put him on =).
