Grammy Byberg’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Grammy Byberg’s Peanut Butter Cookies

¼ cup shortening
¼ cup butter (softened)
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg

1¼ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Extra sugar for coating cookie dough balls

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, combine shortening, butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar and egg. Mix thoroughly until smooth. Slowly add the dry ingredients.

Roll cookie dough into balls about the size of a large walnut. Roll each ball in sugar and place about 3 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake 11 minutes until set but not hard. Makes about 3 dozen, 2 ½ inch cookies.
