This week for Mennonite
Monday Tuesday, I decided to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies (pg 27 Y). I was needing some snacks to take several places and they seemed to be a nice change-up from normal chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies
Preheat oven to 375*
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Stir in flour mixture alternately with 1/2 cup milk. Fold in 1 cup (6 oz.) Hershey's Semi-Sweet Dainties. Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Yields about three dozen cookies.
All of ingredients creamed together. I was not sure what Hershey's Semi-Sweet Dainties were, so I just used semi-sweet chocolate chips, which seemed to work just fine.
Usually I like to refrigerate my cookie dough so the cookies don't go flat, but I didn't have time for that, so I dropped them on the pan as soon as they were done mixing, which turned out fine.
I like soft cookies so I would recommend only baking the cookies for 10 minutes unless the dough is cold.
The recipe was very close to 3 dozen cookies, which is a good size.
