  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, brown sugar and peanut butter. Beat in the milk, egg and vanilla. Stir together the cocoa powder and hot water until cocoa is dissolved; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter until well blended. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on the top.

Wonderful cookies! I wouldn't change a thing in this recipe. Thank you for sharing!


I changed the recipe a little bit by using butter instead of shortening, and had great results. These cookies are delicious. They are a little messy though, what with all the peanut butter and chocolate, but definetly worth it.


I tried these to get kids to eat peanutbutter cookies -- I thought they'd be more interested if they at least looked like chocolate cookies. I won't make them again -- you just can't get enough chocolate flavor into them. Just make regular peanutbutter cookies, or add choc chips if you really want the chocolate flavor. This recipe doesn't work at all.
