This is the first of a series of different sweet foods that will be presented on our site. There will be a vast range of such foods.This recipe has had many improvements and is a favorite of my sister.


  • 2/3 cups butter flavor Crisco
  • 2/3 cups peanut butter (regular)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tps. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tps baking soda
  • 1/2 cup roasted shelled peanuts
  • 1/2 extra granulated sugar for rolling cookies
  • 1/2 tps salt


In a large bowl, cream together the Crisco, peanut butter, granulated and brown sugar. Blend in the egg and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir it into a cream mixture until a smooth dough forms.

Full 1 table spoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Make 18-24 such balls. Roll the balls into extra sugar. Place them into a foil lined cookie sheet.

Dip a fork into flour and flatten the balls. Add peanuts on the newly formed cookie.

Bake in a pre heated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.

Remove and cool on a wire rack.

Eat without thinking!
