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
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.
