Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies

These cookies are crispy with a sugar like texture.
Quite possibly one of the best cookies I've baked.
This recipe makes about 38 two inch cookies.

3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour,
baking powder, baking soda and salt,
set aside.
In another bowl cream the shortening,
butter, granulated and brown sugars.
Add in the egg and keep creaming mixture.
Add in the vanilla and peanut butter, then add in the flour mixture,
beat until a cookie dough forms.
Using your hands roll out walnut sized
balls and plce them two inches apart
on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Use a fork to make a criss cross pattern
on each of the cookie dough balls.
Bake for about 12 minutes or until done.
Remove to cool before storing.
