Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe by Mommy Diva
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 36 cookies




  • Place 2 tablespoons sugar in a small dish and set aside.
  • Combine sugars, peanut butter, shortening, margarine and egg in a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir remaining ingredients into mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Roll dough into 1 1/4 inch balls.
  • Dip each ball in sugar on one side.
  • Place approximately 2-3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, sugar side up.
  • Lightly press a dinner fork flat across each ball twice to make a criss cross pattern.
  • Sprinkle flattened dough with light amount of sugar to "dust" the criss cross.
  • Bake 9 to 10 minutes, until cookies are light brown.
  • Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before removing from tray.
  • Enjoy! ;).
  • TIP- another idea is to press a Hershey's kiss into the middle of each ball prior to baking instead of flattening it with a fork for a "Peanut Butter Kiss". ;) Kids love these!
