Tic Tac Toe Cookies

Ask your friends to guess what the "secret" ingredient is in these tasty peanut butter cookies. Because of their color, we got answers like "sweet potatoes" and "pumpkin."

1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup chunky or creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup Heinz tomato ketchup
1 egg

Sift together flour, soda and salt.

Cream together butter and next three ingredients until light and fluffy. Add ketchup and egg; mix well. Thoroughly blend flour mixture into peanut butter mixture.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. With fork dipped in flour, press cookie flat, making impression in two directions. Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes (ours took 10 minutes on an insulated cookie sheet and 8 minutes on a regular non-stick sheet) or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes 4 1/2 to 5 dozen cookies.
