Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

“My husband says these are the best peanut butter cookies he's ever had...including his mom's! The recipe originally came from I "made it my own" by using Smucker's Natural Creamy Peanut Butter(has to be stirred initially and stored in the refrigerator), butter flavored Crisco and whole wheat flour. Creamy vs chunky peanut butter is your choice.”
