Peanut Butter Cookies

My work is having a March of Dimes fundraiser with many different events. One co-worker and I will be doing a snack cart tomorrow and doing milk and cookies. Remember these?

Yup, we got the small milk cartons to go along with the cookies. :-) Let's all remember waiting in line during elementary school, hoping they don't run out of tater tots before it's our turn.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter at room temperature
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, cream the sugar, peanut butter, shortening, and butter together. Add the egg and beat well. Then add the remaining ingredients until just combined.

Place dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for two hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into small balls, about 1-2 inches. Place on the cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Using a fork, smash the dough until flattened (don't smash too thinly). Bake for 9 minutes.
