cookie #13: salted peanut crisps

recently i've been neglecting my cooky book project, neglecting new cookie recipes in favor of testing out others, like coconut-key lime bars, toasty coconut wedges, brown sugar cheesecake...mother's day is coming up you know but more on that later. so this week i was happy to get back to cookies with my 13th recipe from the betty crocker cooky book, salted peanut crisps.

-1 cup shortening (part butter or margarine)
-1 1/2 cups brown sugar (packed)
-2 eggs
-2 tsp vanilla
-3 cups flour
-1/2 tsp soda
-1 tsp salt
-2 cups salted peanuts

heat oven to 375. mix shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla thoroughly. measure flour by dipping or by shifting. blend together flour, soda and salt; stir in. mix in peanuts. drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough about 2" apart on lightly greased baking sheet. flatten with bottom of greased glass dipped in sugar. bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. makes about 6 dozen.

my notes:
very tasty! the cookie is a yummy, chewy brown sugar cookie and the peanuts make wonderful, salty, little polka dots. i could eat another or a handful!
