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*

- 1⁄2 cup shortening
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- sugar, for dipping
- Melt chocolate chips on low heat, set aside.
- 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 Food.com (formerly Recipezaar) would have it!!
Mmmm! Delicious! A great peanut butter cookie with a hint of chocolate. Thanks for the recipe Marlene! I will be making again in a hurry!!
I sent some of these with my husband to work, and I had to send them the rest the next day. Cookie monsters!!
