You don't have to be a kid to love peanut butter - or cookies, for that matter! This Peanut Butter Cookies recipe combines the two favorites into one ageless treat.

What You'll Need

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, well beaten

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; mix well.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the shortening and peanut butter until creamy, then gradually add the brown and granulated sugars until blended. Add the beaten eggs and mix thoroughly.

  4. Add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and mix until a soft dough forms. Drop by 1/2-teaspoonfuls onto the baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden.
