How to make it

  • Adjust 2 oven racks to be in the center of your oven.
  • Turn the oven on to 375F.
  • Lightly grease the baking sheets with the shortening.
  • Put the peanuts on the cutting board.
  • With the sharp knife, chop coarsely.
  • Set the peanuts aside.
  • Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Stir with the wooden spoon to mix the ingredients.
  • Put the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
  • With the electric mixer set on medium-high speed, beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • With the electric mixer set on low speed, add the flour mixture and beat just until blended.
  • Stir in the peanuts.
  • Roll rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough between your palms into balls.
  • Put the balls on the greased baking sheets, spacing them 3 inches apart.
  • Flatten each ball by pressing on the top with the fork. (If the dough sticks to the fork, dip the fork into granulated sugar before pressing.)
  • Each cooking should be about 1/.2 inch thick.
  • Place the baking sheets in the preheated 375F oven.
  • Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, about 12 minutes.
