Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies, Awards, and a request

Don't these cookies look irresistable? I found this recipe on the butter flavored crisco container and they named it well. I know we haven't been able to resist them! I hope this posts ok. This is my first time using the scheduler. I'm going to be on the summer school swimming field trip with little Sophie.
Over the past week I have recieved several awards. I would like to thank Rachel, Kristen, and Norah for thinking of me! It's an honor. I can't tell you how grateful I am to everyone who stops by and reads my posts. Keep stopping by and I'll keep posting. It's my guilty pleasure!
Thanks to Rachel vs. "The Kitchen" for this Extraordinary and Awesome Blogger award! I stop by and check out all of her posts and have gotten some really great recipes. I would like to pass this award on to:

Thanks Heidi! I'm a little behind on the awards too, this is actually my 2nd time getting this one! I think I better post it.

The cookies look delicious. Peanut butter is my hubby's favorite so I'm sure we'll be trying these out!

Gosh, I love cookies of all sorts, but peanut butter cookies are easily in my top ten, maybe even in the top five! I have all the ingredients to make these, but just never made the recipe on the back of the Crisco can. And here I have been looking for the perfect peanut butter cookie. Will certainly give these a try, perhaps this coming weekend! YUM

Yummy cookies!

Congrats on your awards too!

I have the Hillbilly Housewife's emergency menu and shopping list in a binder. I use them when things get tight. Have you seen them? I have also made a lot of her recipes and they are tasty and economical. I think I read that you liked her also.

It's me again. One of the recipes I like of hers is the Tortilla Chip Pie.

Thank you so much for the sweet award! I left an award for you a while ago -- thought I had left a comment, but looking back, I slacked off -- sorry!

Krista said...

Lara said...

Somehow Crisco makes everything taste better...dang it! I've made these same cookies before and we loved them!

Rachel said...

Congratulations on all of your have such a wonderful blog and thank you so much for the award you passed on to me!

As for "economical" recipes, I've got quite a few--I'm always trying to be as careful as possible, especially b/c up until recently, we were relying almost exclusively on my husband's income. Let me gather a list and I'll get back to you :)
