  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1¼ cup flour
  1. Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix the shortening, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar and egg until smooth.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet until combined.
  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place a few inches apart on a greased cookie tray.

  5. Bake 10-15 minutes until set, but not hard. They will firm up as they cool.
