The BEST Peanut Butter Cookies

My friend Kathryn made these cookies the other day and they were absolutely DELICIOUS! Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside - and she made hers gigantic! mmmmm. I wasn't exaggerating when I told her it was one of the BEST cookies I'd ever had!

1/2 cup shortening (I used butter)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Mix butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and beat well. Next stir in the dry ingredients until just combined. Using an ice cream scoop, shape dough into over sized golf ball like shapes on the cookie sheet (the bigger the better!) Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

I found your blog through my sister-in-law, Whitney. I was looking for a peanut butter cookie recipe. And since this one said it was the BEST, I had to try. And you are right, they are DELICIOUS! Perfect amount of crispy and chewy. I won't tell you exactly how many cookies we have eaten since then, but I have been inspired to try some more recipes from your blog. Thanks for sharing!
