Peanut Butter Cookies

These are my husband's favorite cookies.  Just like his Momma used to make. 

Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
Mix all this together then add
1 and 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Mix all this together.

Now for the secret that makes these J's favorite cookies.  Roll the dough ball in sugar before flattening them out with a fork.  If all my problems would go away when rolled in sugar.  Sigh.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
