Peanut Butter Cookies


½ cup sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

½ cup peanut smooth or crunchy peanut butter

½ cup Bakers mini Reese pieces

¼ cup shortening

¼ cup softened butter

1 egg

1¼ cup flour

Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg then stir in the remaining dry ingredients.  Mix well, cover and chill a couple of hours.

Preheat oven to 375F.  Shape into 1 inch balls or larger depending on your size preference.  Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Flatten with fork in crisscross pattern.  Bake until lightly brown for about 8 to 10 minutes. We melted chocolate and spooned it on each cookie and sprinkled chopped Reese’s pieces on top.
