Here's the recipe: Soft Peanut Butter Cookies
2 c shortening
2 c peanut butter
4 c brown sugar
5 c flour
2 t baking powder
3 t baking soda

Cream shortening, sugar, and peanut butter. Add eggs and mix well, then add dry ingredients. Bake at 375 degrees until set, but not hard. Don't bake until brown or cookies will be hard.
We rolled ours in sugar before baking.
