1993 - PeeBees

Again, we used a "Joy" recipe for the Peanut Butter Cookies. However, we used 1 1/2, not 1, cups of flour. We always use butter when given a choice. The PeeBees were moist and chewy, not at all crumbly. After rolling them into balls, we rolled them in granulated sugar. We wound up with 15 dozen but we needed two sessions (that's two double batches) for these too because we gobbled them up!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Beat until soft:
1/2 c butter or shortening

Add gradually and blend until creamy:
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar

Beat in:
1 egg
1 c peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla

Sift before measuring and add:
1 to 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour

Roll the dough into small balls. Place them on a greased cookie sheet. Press each ball flat with the back of a fork. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes.

Yield: about 5 dozen cookies
