Mom's Peanut Butter Cookies

My Mom made Peanut Butter Cookies for us kids often during my childhood, just like many Moms of her generation for an after school snack.  They were a favorite of Dad's too.  When my sisters and I were old enough to bake, we started making Mom's Peanut Butter Cookies.  Today is a perfect warm cookies and milk kinda rainy and snow day here.  Thanks for a great recipe Mom, I'll have one or two cookies in memory of those baking days of long ago.

Mom's Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl, blend well.  Stir in remaining dry ingredients, blend well.  Roll into 1 " balls and place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten with a crisscross pattern with a fork dipped into sugar.  bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
