Well, I'm a little tardy for PB Day, but here is an awesome recipe for peanut butter cookies.

by Leanne D

Preheat gas oven to 350 degrees (325 for electric).

1/2 cup butter flavor Crisco
1 cup brown sugar
-cream the above together

1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanut butter (I use smooth Jif)

sift or whisk in separate bowl:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients into peanut butter mixture. Wrap in plastic and chill. Roll into 1 inch balls and press lightly onto ungreased cookie sheet. With a fork dipped in flour, make a criss-cross design into top of cookies and flatten.

Bake in preheated oven for 9 min. Let cool for a minute or two on baking sheet then transfer to wire rack or wax paper to cool.
