Re: Peanut Butter cookies
    I saw a request for a good Peanut Butter cookie
recipe. My mother was a cafeteria cook and I think she did
a lot of the baked goods there. I wouldn't be surprised if
she did the big dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls we all
remember. I have her recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies and
hope you all enjoy:

Cream - 1 cup Crisco, 1/2 t. salt, 1 cup peanut butter
Add - gradually 
      1 cup brown sugar (packed),
      1 cup gran. sugar
Add - 2 eggs, 1 T. milk
Sift (I never do) and add - 2 c. flour, 1 t. soda

Put on greased cookie sheet in walnut sized chunks; press
down with fork tines. (can make them larger if you wish)

Bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 min.
Can bake them to a light golden brown or leave in oven a
little longer for a darker crisper cookie.

I think you will find these cookies equal to the cafeteria
cookies.  Let me know!

Bomber Cheers from the currently rainy Bay Area of California!
