Recipe - Peanut Butter Cookies

I don't think I've made peanut butter cookies since the kids were little, but last night I got me a real hankerin' for some, so I made a batch and boy! Were they ever good! Thought I'd share the recipe with you here today! Enjoy! 


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening (I used canola oil)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour (I used Prairie Gold whole wheat)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix ingredients together and chill dough for at least 3 hours. 

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Shape into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped in flour. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet; cool completely. 

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Until next time...
