Peanut Butter Cookies

Sara wanted to make peanut butter cookies Saturday afternoon because she was bored. This is after she already spent a couple of hours making bead necklaces and bracelets at her cousin's house. I think she was just missing Eve and Marie who got to spend the day in Fallon. These are yummy and stay chewy if you under cook them slightly. Warning: This are definitely not for the health conscious!

Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Cream shortening and butters together. Add sugars and mix well. Add eggs and beat. Sift together dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture. Mix thoroughly. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets, press flat with a fork, and bake at 375 for 8 minutes.
