  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • additional sugar for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookies sheets by lining with parchment paper, silpat liner, or spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, cream shortening, peanut butter and sugars until blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into the creamed mixture.
  • Shape into 1-inch balls or use a medium sized cookie scoop and place on baking sheets. Bake 9-11 minutes. The cookies will still be pale and look underdone, but they come together nicely as they cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes. Sprinkle with additional sugar right after they come out of the oven.
