I have a collection of around 10,000 cookbooks or so – I refuse to know the exact amount because I refuse to count them – and I am always on the lookout for more. I love the history of food and the history of recipes and how and where they originated. I always tell people once I am retired I will become a “Food Historian”.
Back to the cookbooks though…
Browsing over a old Church cookbook I found a peanut butter cookie recipe, from Mrs. Bennett, that caught my eye. I decided to try it and after taste testing, I was immediately taken back to my childhood and the local “Egg Farm” where my family and I visited for cookies, cakes and pies. This recipe is a keeper! I went back and adjusted a few things, including the bake time, to get the finished results I wanted.
This recipe produces a light, crunchy almost “brittle” type cookie. Trust me – these are FABULOUS!
Thank you Mrs. Bennett!
Mrs. Bennett’s Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups white all-purpose flour
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the white granulated sugar, light brown sugar, smooth peanut butter and solid vegetable shortening until light in color and fluffy in texture.
Beat in the 2 large eggs.
Add in the baking soda, pure vanilla extract and salt. Stir to combine.
Gently fold in the white all-purpose flour.
Roll teaspoon size amounts of the dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Gently press down making a cross mark on each cookie with a fork.
Bake, one sheet at a time, in preheated oven for 14 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool slightly.

Getting the orders ready! Thank you all so much for the continued dedication and support – means everything to me!
I’ve been stamping Grandma Deloris’ name on her recipe – page 5. She really wanted to autograph them all but she’s weak and her stamina is not the best – so I had a stamp made. She loves that she’s been a part of this journey with me!
Grandma Barbra has been signing boxes and boxes and boxes of books – and not complaining one bit! She wrote the foreword for my cookbook and loves signing the page that has her printed words. Such a special moment. Said she can’t believe she’s doing this ROUND TWO! Hahaha

I love Nancy Fuller and I love her cookbook and show on “Food Network”. This recipe is hers and it is fabulous! Chocolate and peanut butter – what could be better!? I have made a few changes to the recipe based on my personal taste buds.
Nancy’s Peanut Butter Bars with Chocoalte Ganache
1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream
Prepare an 8×8-inch square baking dish by spraying with non-stick spray containing flour.
In a large bowl combine the confectioner’s sugar, graham cracker crumbs, smooth peanut butter and melted unsalted butter.
Once combined, pour into prepared pan and pat down evenly with clean hands.
In a medium size microwave safe bowl combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips and heavy cream. Microwave in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Whisk until glossy.
Pour carefully this mixture over the pressed peanut butter mixture and spread evenly.
Refrigerate for one hour before cutting.
