Hubby made these great Peanut Butter biscuits/cookies using homemade organic peanut butter, nothing added to the peanut butter.  This was one of the items we got from the food bank this month.  For a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it's not quite to our taste.  But we are totally addicted to making peanut butter cookies with this homemade style peanut butter.  Here's the recipe he used.

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 tea sp baking soda
  • 1/2 tea sp baking powder
  • 1/4 tea sp salt (optional)
  1. Cream all the wet ingredients
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients
  3. Add the wet and dry ingredients together
  4. Chill
  5. Bake at 375 f 
  6. 8  - 10 minutes
These are most delicious cookies.  You could add a little more peanut butter: (hubby added a little more regular peanut butter to the organic) if you want to and you can use regular peanut butter or half organic and half regular.
