T’was the night before the night before Christmas, and all through the pantry a lot of peanut butter was found…

As I looked through my Rollout Cookies recipe, I thought that I wanted to make another kind of cookie for Christmas. I had just bought a large container of peanut butter, and that sounded like a really good idea. I also decided it was time to use up some of the shortening I had in my pantry, and I found this lovely recipe for peanut butter cookies from Crisco.

These cookies are nice and soft, different from the crunchy cookies I am used to and really don’t like very much. These melt in your mouth, they are just delicious!

Tonight was special because we got an early Christmas present from my friend Adel. She got us an Amazon Echo Dot. Let me tell you how wonderful it was to be able to say “Alexa, set a timer for 8 minutes”, and she said, “Starting now”. It was perfect because I had dough on my hands that I didn’t want to get on our old-fashioned timer. Alexa is a lot more accurate than the old stand by, too. She will be very helpful in the kitchen indeed.

The choice of peanut butter is important in this recipe. Don’t go for the extra cheap peanut butter that has no flavor. Since the recipe has Spanish peanuts, you will want to use creamy style peanut butter, Jif is my favorite.
