  • In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, shortening and egg until well blended. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the peanut butter mixture to form a dough. Finally, stir in the chopped peanuts. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls using the tines of a fork.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Wow these were good! I actually modified them a bit by adding about 1/4 c. of brown sugar and rolling them in powdered sugar because of one reviewer stating they weren't sweeter. I probably wouldn't have needed to add the extra sugar because they were very sweet and soft. Yum! Read More

The cookies are not sweeter because there is no sugar in the recipe. Good consistency but bland. Read More

I thought these were great. Really easy to make and nice and soft to eat. They were definitely sweet enough for me without any added sugar. I didn't have any peanuts to chop and add so I left those out with no adverse effects. Read More

My Husband is a peanut butter cookie junkie so Ii was looking for something that would satisfy him. The 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk is what caught my eye. I added a whole cup of crunchy peanut butter as per a review I read and two cups of flour the batter was creamy and not easily turned into ballls of dough but theyturned out perfect. i left them in the oven for about 13 mins because at ten they didnt even look brown my husband just had three and had to lay down!! definitely a keeper!

I was disappointed with the cookies. Although they were soft and chewy they lacked the good flavor I expected. My kids didn't even like them and pronounced them- blah. My search for the perfect peanut butter cookie moves on. Read More

These are tasty and easy. I always wondered why most peanut butter cookies didn't have actual peanuts added. I love the crunch that the chopped peanuts provide. I made the recipe as written except for deleting some of the baking powder because of Denver's altitude. Read More

Good peanut butter cookies and EASY. I dipped the fork in sugar before flattening the cookies. Chewy and soft. Those baked on a stoneware sheet had better color and crispier outside tho still soft and chewy inside. Read More

Kid friendly because the ingredients are simple and the cookies easy to prepare. Of course they ate them all too. Just not as 'peanutty' as regular peanut butter cookies. Read More
