Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies via my lovely friend Carolyn


1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter (I probably could have added a little more for a stronger peanut flavor)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Mix thoroughly shortening, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and egg. Blend in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Cover and chill.
  2. Heat oven to 375°. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, coat with sugar and place 3 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not hard.
*Note: don't press these down with a fork!
