From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.   I've tried a few p.b.
cookie recipes over the years.  This is my favorite.  It's from
Crisco. Variations:
- Add m&m's
- Top with a mini Reese Cup (after removed from oven)
- Top with a Hershey Kiss (after removed from oven)
- Roll cookie dough ball in sugar before pressing
- Top w/ pb. frosting, recipe at right below photo
Cream:  
1/2 c Crisco
3/4 c creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 c brown sugar, packed
3 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
Mix well.
Add:
1 egg
Add:
1 3/4 c flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp b. soda

Mix just until blended.

Roll into balls, flatten with fork dunked in sugar.
Bake @ 375, 8-9 minutes
Bake until set & just beginning to brown.
Cool 2 min before moving to cooling rack
Frosted Peanut Butter Bar Cookies
These were made as bars
then frosted with PB
Frosting.
PB Frosting:
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c creamy pb
2 c confectioner sugar
2 tsp milk
Beat until smooth
These were baked then topped with mini
p.b. cups when they came out of the oven.
"Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and
grow old wanting to get back to."
I added M&M's to this batch.
