Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

After some brief computer repair problems, let me introduce you to my favourite recipe book...
As you can see, it's been well-loved, first by my Mom and now by me. I go to it for all of my old time favourite including bread recipes. But my favourite classic peanut butter cookie is also found in this volume and now I'm sharing it with you.

Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

Cream shortening until fluffy. Gradually add sugars mixing until creamy. Beat in eggs and mix well. Add dry ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet and add classic criss-cross with moistened fork.
Bake at 375 F approximately 8-11 minutes.
So good!
