     Ever need to make something sweet but you don't have much time?  Here's your solution.  A peanut butter cookie with a powdered sugar glaze.  The men in my family think we need cookies in the house 24/7, and this has been my life-savor for many, many years!  It whips up quickly, bakes in 15 minutes, and BAM.  You're super mom.

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened (not melted)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-2 Tbs. milk
  1. Mix first 7 ingredients with mixer.
  2. Pat in ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 10-15 minutes until edges start to brown.
  4. Mix last 3 ingredients for glaze and drizzle over cookies while still warm.
     Good luck - they won't stay around long!
