Confetti Peanut Butter Cookies

Confetti Peanut Butter Cookies

½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup butter or margarine, softened
¼ cup vegetable shortening
1 egg
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup miniature candy-coated semisweet chocolate chips

Makes: 4 dozen

Heat oven to 375. In large bowl combine peanut butter, sugars, butter, shortening, and egg. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms. Stir in chips.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with fork in crisscross pattern. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool completely before storing.
