  • Summary

    These have a light and crispy texture thanks to the shortening. Butter won't give you the same results, unfortunately. For best results, use a mixture of shortening and butter.

    Ingredients

    • 4 oz (114 grams) unsalted butter
    • 1/2 cup (100 grams) non-hydrogenated shortening or leaf lard (114 grams)
    • 1 cup (280 grams) peanut butter
    • 1 cup (200 grams) brown sugar
    • 1 cup (190 grams) granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) salt
    • 1 cup (114 grams) cake flour
    • 1 cup (135 grams) all purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup lightly salted peanuts, chopped – (big handful)
