It's cookie exchange day:)

  I have been making these cookies for years.  Every time I try to stop, everyone asks for them.  If you want them to look more like Christmas cookies, you can add red or green food coloring to the peanut butter part...
                         
                                 PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL COOKIES

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups of sugar
4 T. of milk
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 t. baking soda

Cream shortening, peanut butter, eggs, milk  and sugar.
Gradually add flour and baking soda.
Roll into 2 rectangles as wide as a sheet of wax paper. (about 10 inches long and 1/4 inch thick).

1 (12 oz.) package of chocolate chips
2 T butter
1/4 cup peanut butter

Melt chocolate, peanut butter and butter together and spread over dough.
Roll cookies and refrigerate for 1/2 hour.
Slice to 1/4 in. thickness and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 7-8 minutes at 375.  Cool on rack.

Hugs abby

  13. A good "icebox cookie" is a marvelous thing.
    And a chocolate peanut butter icebox cookie is even better!
    I'd object if you stopped making these for me, too. (I will not object should you choose to start, however!

    Thanks for playing along, abby!
