Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

In mixing bowl put...1 C. Regular Shortening, 1 C. White Sugar, 1 C. Brown Sugar, 1 tsp. Vanilla Flavoring, 2 eggs....Mix well. Add: 1 C. Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy) Blend well.
In a seperate bowl put 3 C. sifted flour and 2 tsp. baking soda. Mix this then add to batter mix.
In a muffin tin for mini muffins drop dough balls...I think these are about 1 &1/2 tsp.

I then pressed them flat.
Bake these in 375* oven. Approx. 8 min. These will puff up and then fall in the middle...just right for these...

As soon as you place cookies in oven get busy unwrapping cups! When cookies are baked or nearly so remove from oven and let cool just a bit then pop the cups in the center.
Or just make plain old peanut butter cookies! These are fantastic!
