Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe belonged to my Great Great Grandmother Williams. I was handed down her cookbook that she typed on a type writer and drew cute little pictures in.


1/2 C Shortening
1/2 C Crunchy Peanut butter
1/2 C White sugar
1/2 C Dark Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 1/4 C all purpose Flour
3/4 teas. Baking Soda
1/2 teas. Baking Powder
1/4 teas. Salt

First blend together your "wet" ingredients, sugars, shortening, peanut butter and egg.

Then slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixture until well blended.

After you have all the ingredients mixed together, let them sit in the fridge for an hour or so, to harden up enough to roll them into balls for baking.

So my adorable assistant helped me put the "x" marks on the top of these yummy cookies.

And after they have cooled off a little below piping hot temperatures, have a nice glass of milk with 2...3...4...maybe 5 of these babies.
