Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, shortening and one half up of peanut butter. Mix together until it resembles a course meal.
  2. Add the corn syrup and the milk. Scrape dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a long roll of about 2 inches in diameter.
  3. Chill the dough until it becomes firm, about 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
  4. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Cut the dough into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Place half of the dough slices about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Drop about 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter on the center of each slice. (If desired add 2-4 chocolate or other chips.) Top with the other slice of dough and seal the top and bottom with a fork. Bake until light brown but still soft to the touch in the center, about 11-12 minutes.
