I've been using this recipe for years. Soft & chewy. Just bake longer for a crisp cookie. It always turns out well. Variations: -1- add m&m's -2- top with a chocolate kiss


This is a family favorite. Old fashion taste like the kind Grandma made.


I've made these with Crisco and with Butter, they are more moist and thick with the Crisco, but just as delicious with butter. I also tried out store brand (Kroger)peanut butter, added (Kroger)peanut butter chips and placed a Hershey Kiss on top right after bringing them out of the oven. I wanted to see if they could be made with lower cost ingredients and it seems you just can't mess these up, they are delicious any way you make them!!
