Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

contributed by Shawna Hawkins

2 3/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup of butter

1/2 cup of crisco

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 TBSP dark corn syrup

2 tsp vanilla

2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl beat butter, crisco, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Scrap bowl and add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Beat in corn syrup and vanilla. Blend in flour mixture on low just until combine. Chill 30 minutes before baking. (I don’t always do this) Shape into balls and sprinkle with sugar for a soft cookie and bake 12 minutes or until pale golden.

For a chewier cookie, shape into balls and press down with a sugared fork and bake for 12 minutes. These work great as plain pb cookies or can be used as kiss cookies also
