Melt In Your Mouth Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
- 1 cup shortening
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2: Beat the shortening with the sugars and the peanut butter until well mixed. Beat in the egg and the water.
step 3: Gradually beat in the flour, baking soda and salt. Form cookies on an ungreased baking sheet with a cookie press or roll into balls and smash flat with a floured fork or fingers.
step 4: Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 minutes or more until done, usually when the puffed up cookie has lowered down to level. Before then it is more chewy.
step 5: For High Altitude, omit water and add eggs last, mixing well, but not beating them as at sea level. Raise the temperature to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C). Or use a convection oven at 312 degrees F (155 degrees C) for 15 min works even better.
