Peanut Butter Cookies

This is my favorite kind of cookie.  My husband makes cookies at our house and we have searched for many years for a cookie recipe that I love.  This one is a keeper.

3/4 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
3 T. milk
1 T. vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 c. flour
3/4 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
1- 1 1/2 c. peanut butter chips (add more if you like them, less if you don't)

* Preheat oven to 375 degrees

* Combine peanut butter, shortening, milk, sugar and vanilla in large bowl, until well blended.  Add egg and beat until just blended.

* Combine flour, baking soda and salt.  Add to peanut butter mixture with peanut butter chips.  Mix until just blended.  Drop by tablespoon (medium scoop is perfect for this) onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly with fork.  Bake for 8 min. or until barely brown.  Remove to cooling rack and enjoy!
