Baking Cookies

Remember the other day when I said my sister had bought me some American measuring cups? Well she also brought with her some shortening and a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies which she had "borrowed" from Deb over at PaperTurtle

As I seem to be "Home Alone"this week I thought I'd try them out.


Peanut Butter Cookies

(All measurements are in American Cup size)
In a large bowl, combine and mix:
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar (packed)
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a separate bowl, combine the following:
1- 1/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

then add it to your egg/sugar mixture:

Shape dough into 1" balls and place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork to squash the cookie balls, making a criss-cross shape on top.
Bake at 180◦C until set but not hard, 8-9 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. I think next time I won't squash mine as much and make them slightly thicker.

Eat, eat, eat!!
