DIRECTIONS

  • Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg in large bowl.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls.
  • Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped into sugar (water works well too).
  • Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Note: about 1 minute before they are done it helps to lift and bang the sheet on the rack and turn it.
  • Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Other note: you can use all butter/margarine to replace the shortening and probably would work vice versa as well.
