Salted Peanut Crisps

These are a cookie-but in a salty satisfying peanut way. That makes them more for grown ups than for kids in my mind. I am in a peanut mood though, so that could be why. Also, youngest shouldn’t eat peanuts with her braces-though she ignores that in some cases-I think this is one. These are super quick and not too horribly time consuming for non bar cookies. It might go over well if you are looking for a Super Bowl Dessert Type snack…easy to eat…peanuts and beer…go for it!

Heat oven to 375°

Cream together:
1/2 cup Crisco
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar (packed in cup)

Stir in:
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Sift together:
3 cups sifted Gold Medal Flour
1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt

Mix together then add:

2 cups salted peanuts

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheet. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
