Peanut Butter Cookies

This is another recipe from the 100 best cookies magazine. They said to only chill 1 hour, I chilled 1.5 hours and would recommend chilling overnight so they don't spread as much as they did for me. They still tasted really good, just think next time I will chill longer.

  • 1 cup peaut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  1. Beat peanut butter, butter and shortening until combined.
  2. Add the sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Beat till combined.
  3. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
  4. Beat in flour till combined.
  5. Cover and chill overnight.
  6. Preheat oven to 375. Place additional granulated sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 1 1/4'' balls. Roll balls in sugar an place 2'' apart on baking sheets. Flatten by crisscross marks with the tines of a fork.
  7. Bake 7-9 minutes or until bottoms are lightly brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute and transfer cookies to a wire rack and cool.
