¼ cup shortening (or coconut oil)
¼ cup butter (softened)
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ¼ cups flour
¾ teaspoon soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
Mix thoroughly shortening, butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and egg. Blend in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Cover and chill in refrigerator.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. With fork dipped in sugar, flatten into a crisscross pattern to 2 inches. Bake 10-12 minutes until set but not hard. Removed from cookies sheets to cool.
Notes: Who doesn't love peanut butter cookies! This is another family favorite and they don’t last long in this house! This recipe can also be doubled.
