Peanut Butter Cookies

Devin and I made peanut butter cookies to take to a neighbor and realized we didn't have any paper plates to deliver them on! Once the cookies cooled down, we stacked them in the center of saran wrap, brought the corners up to the top and tied a ribbon around. I think it turned out cute!

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C peanut butter
1/4 C shortening
1/4 C margarine or butter, softened
1 egg
1 1/4 C all purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

1. Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, margarine, and egg until well blended.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients
Optional: Cover and refrigerate 1-3 hours (my Mom prefers to make her's this way)
3. Shape dough into balls and flatten in a crisscross patter with fork dipped in flour
4. Bake at 375 for 9-10 minutes.
