1/2 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
2 eggs (beaten)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

In a large bowl, cream the shortening, butter and peanut butter together. Add in the eggs. In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture, mixing well.
