{12 Days of Christmas} Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

  • Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup extra-crunchy Peanut Butter 
  • (*The original recipe uses creamy but I much prefer crunchy*)
  • 1/2 stick Crisco Baking Sticks All-Vegetable Shortening 
    (Or 1/2 cup Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening)
  • 1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Combine peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Add egg. Beat only until blended.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix until blended. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2-inches apart onto greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly in a crisscross pattern with a fork.
  3. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to cooling racks to cool completely.

This is my absolute favorite cookie to make and to enjoy!
It is always a favorite at Christmas parties and my friends always ask me to make them these cookies. 
I hope you try them out this holiday season - and if you do, let me know how you like them in the comments!
Happy Christmas!
