heirloom cookies

this recipe is probably not that different from any other peanut butter cookie recipe. there are no exotic ingredients... unless you count the love, the special moments, and the memories of my grandmom and my mom serving these to me on a plate with a cold glass of milk.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup hot water
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups flour

in a large mixing bowl cream together the sugars, shortening, and eggs. dissolve the baking soda in the hot water. add to the mixing bowl along with the peanut butter and flour. mix well.

form 1" balls and criss cross with a fork, dipped in water to prevent sticking. bake at 400* for 8-10 minutes.

everyday gift: cookies served with nostalgia
