Oh, what the heck! It’s a blustery winter afternoon…-16 here in Calgary, not factoring in the wind chill.
Dad left a voice mail this morning saying that he was making Mom’s Peanut Butter Cookies and that I should be jealous that I’m not in Belleville, Ontario to share them.
I started making my own batch after he e mailed me this recipe.
Kay’s Peanut Butter Cookies
1/3 Cup shortening
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Egg slightly beaten
1 Cup Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
Sugar for coating
Cream together shortening and sugars, add peanut butter.
Mix in egg.
Add dry ingredients.
Roll into balls, then roll in sugar.
greased cookie sheet , press flat with a fork.
350 oven for 10 minutes.
(True confession…after doing a mass message out to the family, with this recipe, Dad revealed that this is, in fact, my sister-in-law, Ann-Marie’s recipe…that Mom always used butter instead of shortening…but, regardless, these cookies are delicious!)
I’m including any participant photographs here…and giving credit!
The first dozen of my cookies.
I’m waiting for the rest of the photos to come in and will post here…thanks for participating! I love you all…on warm days and cold days and in-between-days!
