Hey, You know what?
A round cookie with one bite out of it looks like a "C"
A round donut with one bite out of it also looks like a "C" but it is not as good as a cookie
Oh, and the moon sometimes looks like a "C" but you can't eat that So...

- Cookie Monster's Cookie Song
So, song aside...(sorry, couldn't resist!) I have some wonderful cookies recipes to share with thoes who care to ready and try them! I baked the Peanut Butter cookies some time last month for my hubby who requested them and absolutly LOVES them, so being a wonderful, I baked them for him and I did one up, as I baked some for his co-workers! I bet that was a wonderful suprise for them to come into work on a Friday and have some cookies waiting for them. (Hubby later came home and said that they were gone in a FLASH!)

1/2 c. sugar

Pinch of vanilla extract

Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg in a large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refigerate 1-2 hours or until firm. Preheat oven to 375 F. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place about 2-3 inches apart on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork dippen in sugar. Bake 9-10 min. or until light golden brown. Cool 5 min. then remove from cookie sheet. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
