Peanut Butter Cookies

Since we're giving away a COOKIE SCOOP this week, we thought we'd keep with the theme of cookies! So Kyla tried these peanut butter cookies that I used to make when I was about her age that are really good. If you win (or already have your own) you can use this to make making these cookies so much easier and more fun!! Kyla made these all by herself and they were gobbled up in no time. If an 11 year old can do it...anyone can!:)

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 - 3 cups flour
2 Tablespoons cream (you can use whipping cream or even evaporated milk)
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream sugars and shortening. Add peanut butter and eggs and mix. Mix in cream and dry ingredients. Roll into balls (or if you have a scoop use the medium sized one), and then press flat using a fork...one press vertical and one horizontal. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
