Peanut Butter Cookies

Here is another special cookie favorite from our house to yours.  These are even better if you put a big chocolate chip in the middle before baking!  Hey, they have peanut butter in them so they have to be good for you, right?

Peanut Butter Cookies

½ c. shortening
½ c. peanut butter
½ c. sugar
½ c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 ¼ c. flour
½ tsp. baking powder
¾ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt

Cream together first 4 ingredients. Beat in egg. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add wet ingredients and mix well. Chill dough thoroughly, at least 4 hours. Take 1 Tbsp dough and form into small balls. Place 2” apart on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork dipped in flour making a criss-cross pattern and flattening the cookies to about 1/2” thick. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


  1. Sounds so yummy. I'll be making these cookies this weekend. Thanks for posting!

  2. Careful not to over bake. These should be tender. Soooo yummy!
