Here's a simple, fool-proof recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies. I love these cookies! If you have a craving for some cookies and milk, this is the perfect recipe.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup shortening

1/4 cup margarine softened

1 egg

1 1/4 cup flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tsp Vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix brown and white sugars, peanut butter, shortening, margarine, vanilla and egg. Mix well.

Then mix together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture. Stir until well blended.

Roll peanut butter dough into little balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Press down lightly on each ball with a fork to form a criss-cross.

Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown.
