Munchie Monday

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 salt.

Cream together in a large bowl the sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter, and egg. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and chill for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place 3 inches apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten with a fork dipped in granulated sugar to form a criss-cross pattern. If you want to add chocolate, don’t flatten but place a Hershey’s Kiss in the center of each ball and flatten slightly.

Bake 9-10 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove to wire rack and cool.


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
