Peanut Butter Cookies

I never realized how easy peanut butter cookies are to make.  Why have I only made the pre-made dough ones?  I loved these and will be making them many more times to come.  I will need to learn how to make the scissor lines a little cleaner though!

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups flour, sifted

Directions:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream shortening and stir in sugars.  Beat in peanut butter, egg, soda, powder and gradually stir in flour.  Form batter into balls between the palm of your hands.  Place on greased cookie sheet and press with the back of a fork, making scissor lines.  Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
