These have been my absolute favorite cookies, ever since I was a little kid. I begged my mom to make them and then would usually hide them and eat the entire plate. Before Christmas I hadn't eaten one in years. My little girl was deathly allergic to peanuts and then miracles of all miracles, outgrew the allergy. To celebrate my mom made a huge batch for Christmas, which I think I ate most of.
You will need:
1/2 C. Granulated Sugar + extra for rolling
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Peanut Butter
1/4 C. Shortening
1/4 C. Butter
1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Mix the brown sugar, sugar, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg together. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Roll into 1-inch balls and then roll balls in granulated sugar. Bake at 375 for 9-10 minutes or until the edges brown. Allow to cool.
The hardest part of this recipe is try and not eat the entire thing by yourself. I have never succeeded. I wish you better luck. ;)
