Giant Peanut Butter Cookies for Tasty Tuesday 6/12
If you like peanut butter cookies, try these giant ones!
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
2. Beat shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and salt together in large bowl until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking soda. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture while beating.
4. Roll 3 tablespoon-size portions of the dough into a ball in your hands and press to 1/2-inch flat on an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle a little extra sugar on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or the cookies will not be chewy.
Makes 14 to 16 cookies.
