Peanut Butter Cookies
Best peanut butter cookie recipe of all time!
1/2 C oleo (butter), melted
1/2 C chunky or smooth peanut butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
Melt butter in a saucepan. In a large bowl, mix butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar. In another bowl, combine and sift the following:
1-1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Gradually blend flour mixture into peanut butter mixture. Mix until smooth. Scoop one tablespoon of mixture and shape into walnut-sized ball. Arrange dough 3" apart on a cookie sheet lightly coated with non-stick cooking spray. Using a fork, flatten each ball by making a criss-cross pattern with a fork dipped in flour.
Bake at 375-degrees F for ten to twelve minutes. Allow to cool before removing cookies from cookie sheet. Recipe makes two dozen.
Tip: Shorter cooking time will produce softer cookies.

Note from Shenanchie:
Peanut Butter Cookies was the first recipe I learned to make as a child. It came from a Rock Springs, Wyoming community cookbook which my mother obtained in the late 1960s. The cover of the cookbook is now missing and the pages are tattered and stained with foodstuff from so much use, but it remains a valuable little gem. The Peanut Butter Cookie recipe was credited to Ann Zueck.
