These are fantastic cookies. I doubled everything except the peanut butter. For the shortening, I used 3/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. shortening. I chilled the dough about 15 minutes before rolling into balls and using a fork dipped in white sugar to make the criss-cross pattern. Honestly, these are some heavenly p.b. cookies!! Love them!!
