Found this recipe online through a couple different sources and decided to try it out. Apparently the recipe used to be on the back of welfare peanut butter. Regardless of where it came from, these cookies are exactly what I'm looking for in peanut butter cookies!
(picture to come... eventually)
2-1/2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup fat (margarine, butter, or shortening)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
Mix flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
Mix fat and peanut butter. Add both kinds of sugar. Mix well. Add eggs and beat well.
Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture.
Drop dough from a teaspoon on baking pan. Flatten with a fork.
Bake at 375 ° (moderate oven) 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.
Makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies
