Auntie Grace's Peanut Butter Cookies

This is my 1st time adding a recipe....hope you all like it....I know everyone has a "fave" PB cookie recipe - this one's mine! :)
3/4 C Shortening
3/4 C Butter
1 C Brown Sugar (packed)
1 C White Sugar
3/4 C Peanut Butter (creamy)
3 Eggs (beaten)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 C Coconut
2 tsp Vanilla
3 C Flour

1 C White Sugar (put into a bowl to roll dough around in)
Variation: (My mom would smash up rice krispies and add into sugar bowl - to make cookies extra crunchy...)

Mix together then put on floured board and knead in more flour (about 1/2 C) so it isn't sticky. Make into balls the size of a walnut (small ice cream scoop works best) and then roll dough ball around into sugar. Put onto baking sheet and press flat with fork tines.

Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
