Alberta's Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of soda
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of peanut butter(old fashioned peanut butter is better)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Cream the shortening and sugars together.
Add and mix in the egg.
Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients and stir in till uniform.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, press flat with a spatula or a fork for pattern and bake at 320 degrees F for 8 min. Sis puts crushed candy cane on top of each cookie around the holidays. She also says that the temperature and timing may have to be adjusted though this is the original text of the recipe.
