Peanut Butter Cookies

I love peanut butter cookies. I make them gigantic in size.

•2 & 1/2 cups flour, sift or stir before measuring
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•2 teaspoon baking powder
•1 cup shortening (or margarine)
•1 cup peanut butter
•1 cup granulated sugar
•1 cup light brown sugar, packed
•1 teaspoon vanilla
•2 eggs

PREPARATION: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugars; beat in vanilla and eggs. Stir in flour mixture, blending well. Shape mixture into 3/4-inch balls; roll ball in sugar and place on sprayed baking sheets. Flatten each cookie with the tines of a fork; dip fork in sugar periodically to keep it from sticking to the peanut butter cookie dough.

Bake peanut butter cookies at 375° for about 10 to 12 minutes. I bake huge cookies so I get less, about 2 1/2 dozen. More for smaller cookies.
