Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Beat shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and salt together in large bowl until smooth. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking soda.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or the cookies will not be chewy and you may negatively impact the full enjoyment potential of the product. This recipe yields 14 to 16 cookies.
