Great-Aunt Ruby's Peanut Butter Cookies
This cookie recipe was brought to you in part by the 59 million + US citizens who voted for George Bush, and by Senator John Kerry, whom I thank for being gracious in defeat.
1 cup shortening (1/2 c. butter, 1/2 c. lard)
1 2/3 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter
Blend the above ingredients together.
2 eggs, slightly beaten - gradually add to peanut butter mixture
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
and gradually add to above.
Mix well. Form balls, maybe a little smaller than a golf ball.
Place on lightly-greased cookie sheet. Squash flat with fork.
Bake at 375 - 400 for about 10 minutes.
These continue cooking for a bit after you take them out of the oven, so don't wait until they look too brown.
Remember the little puppy I found, crying and alone next to the crushed body of her Mom? Remember how she was so heartbroken that she would just sit still ...
