Peanut Butter Cookies...

I have had this recipe for ages, but can't remember making these cookies much in recent years.  Today was another cold and rainy day (which was a little frustrating because *everyone* else was getting lots of snow!) and we needed a bit of a pick me up.  I quickly mixed these cookies up, chilled the dough, and baked them while the little ones chased each other around the house.  They slowed down long enough to gobble a few cookies down before dashing off to play again!  These are definitely crisp cookies...  I like them fresh from the oven.

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

1/4 cup soft shortening
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup soy or almond milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix together the shortening, margarine, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, and almond milk.  Sift in the dry ingredients.  Chill the dough for half and hour.  Roll dough into balls the size of walnuts.  Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and flatten the balls with a fork dipped in sugar.  Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

Nice! Sunny here today; we had thick wet snow for maybe an hour; melted and gone now; welcome to N NJ I guess?
