Peanut Butter Cookies

3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 T. milk
1 T. vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix flour, salt, and baking soda in separate bowl; set aside.  Beat peanut butter, shortening, and sugar until fluffy, add milk, egg, and vanilla.  Combine mixtures.  Make criss-cross patterns with fork.

Bake 7-8 minutes, just until they are dry on top- but NOT brown!
