These are really good, especially if you like the whole peanut butter /chocolate combination. I could actually go for a bit MORE chocolate ;)Thinking about maybe, the next time I make them , dipping half the cookie in melted chocolate ;) *cooking time is per pan*

  2. In large bowl combine sugars, shortening, peanut butter and egg mixing well.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I'd been making these for years, then lost the recipe book that had the recipe. Outstanding chocolate & peanut butter flavor and simple to make. I knew (formerly Recipezaar) would have it!!
