What's on the Menu!

I have one of my families favorite cookie recipe to share with everyone. I have to make a double batch of this cookie because my son always wants a whole plate for himself. This was always my dad's favorite cookie at Christmas time. The reason everyone loves this cookie so much is because it melts in your mouth.

                                             Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 pound lard
3 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
3 teaspoons baking soda

Mix lard, brown sugar and white sugar very well. Then add vanilla and peanut butter and mix very good. After that has been mixed add baking soda and flour in and mix very good. The dough will be flaky and that is how it should be. Then you will take dough and form into about one inch ball and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Take a fork and make a tic tac toe print on the cookie. Bake at 350 oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

I've never worked with lard. It's one of those things that people are on both sides about, one side says it's terrible, yet some health conscious sorts say it's a natural fat, which makes it better for you than processed. I'm not even sure what it looks like but I've seen it in blocks similar to butter in the stores. When the flour dust settles from the cookie marathon, and all the cookies are gone, I may have to try this one, thanks!

I'm probably going to try one, too, only I'm eating, not baking.

Thanks, THB.
