1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup Peter Pan peanut butter
1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda


1. Preheat oven to 275F.

2. Beat shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and salt together in large bowl until smooth.

3. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking soda. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture while beating.

4. Roll 3 tablespoon-size portions of the dough into a ball in your hands and press to 1/2-inch flat on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or the cookies will not be chewy and you may negatively impact the full enjoyment potential of the product.

Makes 14 to 16 cookies.
