Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups flour, sift or stir before measuring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugars; beat in vanilla and egg. Stir in flour mixture, blending well.

I will use this recipe with modifications. I will use less flour more brown sugar and a natural peanut butter the next time. I tasted quite a bit of flour in the finished product. My toddlers liked them though.
