Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

Directions

Place 2 tablespoons sugar in a small dish and set aside.
Combine sugars, peanut butter, shortening, margarine and egg in a large mixing bowl.
Stir remaining ingredients into mixture.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll dough into 1 1/4 inch balls.
Dip each ball in sugar on one side.
Place approximately 2-3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, sugar side up.
Lightly press a dinner fork flat across each ball twice to make a criss cross pattern.
Sprinkle flattened dough with light amount of sugar to "dust" the criss cross.
Bake 9 to 10 minutes, until cookies are light brown.
Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before removing from tray.
Enjoy! ;).
TIP- another idea is to press a Hershey's kiss into the middle of each ball prior to baking instead of flattening it with a fork for a "Peanut Butter Kiss".
;) Kids love these!
