Ingredients:  
1/2 c Crisco butter flavor shortening
1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1 c firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1-1/4 c whole wheat four
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:
Directions:
Mix shortening, peanut butter, sugars and egg thoroughly. Measure flour by dip-level-pour method. Blend all dry ingredients; stir in. (Most peanut butter cookie recipes tell you now to chill the dough—I never do.) Roll into 1 ˝ inch balls and place some apart on a greased cookie sheet (unless your cookie sheets don’t require this—my Costco purchased insulated sheets do not, nor do the Teflon kind). Flatten with fork in a crisscross patter. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, checking to see if done, and for another minute or two if not. Do not over bake if you want a soft cookie when cool.

Personal Notes:
The recipe comes from my 1961 Betty Crocker cookbook, but I use only shortening, only brown sugar, and, of course, whole wheat flour.
