PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES "THE BEST"

Peanut butter cookies are always welcome for most of us.......and these were perfect.  Not your typical look for peanut butter cookies, they look more like a crinkle cookie.   Roll them in balls and roll in sugar then place on your cookie sheet.  They flatten out nicely and get all those little "nooks and crannies". Found this recipe on Pinterest listed as the "Best" well that got my attention.  Yummy   

The original recipe from vegan gusto

The Best Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup packed brown sugar (I used light brown)
1 cup white sugar plus more for rolling the cookies in 
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter (I used creamy JIF) 
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour

Mix the sugars and the butter and shortening and the peanut butter together till light and fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix.   In another bowl add the measured flour with the baking soda and the salt and whisk together then add to the wet mixture and mix.  Use the low speed so that you are not covered with flour while mixing.   I used my cookie scoop that holds 2 TBSP of dough and roll into a ball then roll the ball in the extra white sugar. Do not press with a fork like the normal peanut butter cookie.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 11 to 13 minutes.  Allow to cool on the rack before moving them to the cooling rack.  

Enjoy
