Peanut Butter Cookies

I have decided to not buy anymore store/boxed cookies this year. Have you looked at what is in their list of ingredients? Well I did and wished I had not, so I decided to make all of our cookies this year. Sounded good at the time.....Well it is still good but I am rather busy hee hee. Ransome is a little cookie monster to say the least and Raine loves cupcakes, so when I bake cookies, I then have to bake cupcakes. I forgot to mention Raven no longer likes store sliced bread and wants homemade bread for toast and sandwiches. NO problem right??? I have two really great recipes for sandwich bread that I will be sharing soon. Now back to the cookie post. I seem to always have peanut butter in my pantry, as I am sure many of you do, so peanut butter cookies it is. This time I added chocolate bells I had left from Christmas so these are extra good! This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek!


1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup shortening
1 t baking soda
2 1/2 cups flour
2 eggs
2 bags of kisses

Mix both sugars, peanut butter, and shortening. Now add baking soda to mixture. Stir well.
Stir in the eggs one at a time. Now add the flour. Roll dough into balls.
Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet. Press with fork to make criss-cross design. Bake at 350' for about 8-10 minutes. As soon as you take the cookies out place a chocolate kiss or in my case chocolate bell in the center.
