Peanut Butter Critters


Our children ask for these cookies more then any other cookie, so we see these far more often then just Christmas time!

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
Beat well.
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Add and beat until fluffy.
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Add and beat well.
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
Stir until all combined.

Shape dough and arrange on cookie sheet. You can make anything you desire but here's how I do it.
Make a small ball of dough. Flatten the ball onto the cookie sheet for a bear head.
Make a tiny ball for a nose and two more for ears. Lightly press chocolate chips for eyes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool for one minute before removing from cookie sheet.
If you wish you can decorate with icing after cooling.
