Directions:
Sift flour before measuring (but I never do that!), add soda & salt (can omit salt when using margerine). Set dry ingredients aside. Cream shortening & sugars together. Add beaten eggs & mix until smooth. Add peanut butter & vanilla, stir well then add dry ingredients. Mix well & form into small balls & press on a cookie sheet with back of fork to form a waffle design. Bake about 15 minutes in preheated oven at 375 degrees. Remove from pan to cake rack immediately after baking.

HINT: I also use this same recipe to make P.B. Chocalate Kiss Cookies. Roll the little balls in sugar, do not flatten. Place Hershey Kiss on each cookie as soon as they come out of the oven.
These are my kids favorite.
