The cookie jar (well, at least the imaginary one) needed re-filling and I asked Brad to tell me what type to make. He suggested peanut butter cookies, so that’s what we did. Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix together the shortening, peanut butter, sugars and egg. Blend in the remaining ingredients. If desired, cover and chill about 1 hour. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Dip a fork in flour or sugar and press on each ball to make a criss-cross pattern. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes.
