  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, brown sugar and peanut butter. Beat in the milk, egg and vanilla. Stir together the cocoa powder and hot water until cocoa is dissolved; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter until well blended. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on the top.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I am not a fan of chocolate chips but my family is so I thought we could compromise by trying this recipe. Pretty good and the family seemed to like them. Nice blend of chocolate and PB and VERY...

Very good. Could have used a bit more peanut butter and sugar for extra sweetness, but still just as yummy with a cold glass of milk.

While I did like this cookie, it wasn't quite what I had hoped it would have been. Wasn't peanut buttery enough (for me)and a little dry.

I liked the texture of the cookie. I am like some of the other though. Next time I would add some chocolate chips and nuts. I added some extra sugar and sprinkled some on top. They would pro...

Mmmm...these are so good warm from the oven. I added a little over a 1/4 C. extra sugar and 3/4 C. chocolate chips and they are delicious!!
