I would like to introduce our 4 year old granddaughter Kate, the youngest "baker" in our family. She and I made cookies today and she was such a good helper! She did a great job licking the beater as you can see by the chocolate between her eyebrows and around her mouth. She also helped me roll the batter into nice “round” balls and patiently waited for them to bake. I’m sure she will be a great baker one day.
2 cups flour
2 cups white sugar
¾ cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups Butter Flavor Crisco
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups peanut butter chips
Cream the Butter Flavored Crisco with the sugar. Beat in eggs and extract. Mix flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt together than add it to the wet ingredients and mix well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Roll into balls a little smaller than a walnut and bake on an UNgreased cookie sheet for 8 minutes at 350°. After 8 minutes, it will look like they need another minute or two, but don’t over bake them. Cool them on parchment paper and store in a cookie jar with a lid. These cookies will stay more like a brownie if you keep them covered.

These cookies are usually frosted, but "we" didn't want to wait.
