Peanut Butter Honey Cookies

We found this recipe in a kids cookbook.  The little girls helped me make them & they were delicious!!!

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter (we used chunky)
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350.  Lightly grease the cookie sheet.

In a large bowl combine the sugar, shortening, peanut butter, honey & egg.  Mix well.
In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt.  Stir until mixed.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, stir continuously.  It is a fairly wet batter.

Drop dough in rounded teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.  Cookies should be about 2 inches apart. 
Bake at 350 for approximately 12 minutes.  The bottom edge should look lightly golden.  They will be very soft when they first come out of the oven.  Let them cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
