Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips

The Altitude Adjustment Section
Peanut butter cookies are yummy, then you add some chocolate chips and forget about it, they are just magic. Here is my version, which originated in the Better Homes and Gardens red and white checkered cookbook. Some recipes just do not need to be complex.

Ingredients
1 cup Crisco
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup commercial peanut butter
3 cups A.P. flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Procedure
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In the bowl of your electric mixe,r combine Crisco, both sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Now combine wet and dry stuff and mix in chocolate chips. Roll dough in your hands into walnut size balls. Put on cookie sheet and criss cross with forks as you press dough down. Bake for 10-12 minutes till cookies start to get brown around the edges. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes before eating them all. It's not a bad idea to have a glass of milk standing by. Bernice, you can have chocolate milk.
