I love these cookies too. I have given about 4 dozen along with c chip, and sugar cookies to neighbors this year. All I hear is "man, those peanut butter cookies were excellent"! Let me tell you, they are a heck of a lot easier than the frosted sugar cookies too.

So, Ol-blue, what other fantastic recipes do you have up your sleeve....

I"m going to give them a try today using butter... Shortening isn't something we can get here I don't think, I will have a look when I shop next but in the meantime butter it is :)

I'm in the middle of making these right now. Everything is in the bowl now (just finished adding all the flour mixture), but the mixture does not appear very cohesive. It seems too dry and is falling apart... is this normal? It's not like the doughs I have normally encountered.

(can't afford a new camera right now...)


Edit: Well whad'ya know; I think I discovered my problem: Shortening != sunflower oil... :) I'm going to cook "it" and eat it anyway.

Edit2: Despite the oil constantly trying to separate from the mixture, they turned out okay! They completely flattened to merge into a giant flat cookie (due to lubrication of the mixture I suppose), but its still very nice and cookie-like.

I'm glad you found out what the problem was. The shortening is the important part of this recipe, it makes it melt in your mouth.
