Amazing Gooey Peanut Butter Cookies


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together shortening, brown sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Stir in egg, milk, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. lightly flatten with a fork to make a criss-cross pattern.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Note: I took them out of the oven while they were still pretty soft at 8 minutes and they are perfect!
Seal in an airtight container to keep soft.
