I promise these are the easiest peanut butter cookies ever! I know there is nothing new about peanut butter cookies. But this recipe comes from an old church cookbook. Now you understand, right? Nothing better than those recipes!


1/2 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. Crisco
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 c. flour
1 t. soda

Mix first five ingredients. Then add flour and soda that has been mixed together. Make small balls and press with a fork on the cookie sheet. Cook 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. This recipe doubles easily.

(Umm, two food posts in a row!)

    I'm copying this one as well. I've lost 8 pounds this month... so cookies are not on my menu just yet... but hopefully when I reach my goal I can start making them again and keep my head about me. lol I wanted raw cake batter so bad yesterday I thought I would faint. Funny thing tho, no one has ever died from not getting raw cake. ? Go figure
