We have baked these since the 1960's--a cookie jar favorite at our house!
List of Ingredients
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed in cup)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp double-action baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Mix together thoroughly the sugars, peanut butter, butter, shortening, and eggs.
Sift dry ingredients together and stir in.
Chill dough 1-2 hours. Roll into balls the size of large walnuts. Place 3 inches apart on lightly greased cookie tray. Flatten criss-cross with fork dipped in granulated sugar.
Bake 10-12 minutes in 375 degree oven--until set but not hard.
Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
