Slightly adapted from kingarthurflour.com

Not-Too-Sweet Peanut Butter Cookies
(makes approximately 24 cookies)

1/3 cup shortening
1 Tablespoon margarine
1 egg
3/4 cup raw sugar (a.k.a. turbinado sugar)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup peanut butter
1 Tablespoon water
1-1/2 cups (3/2) cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, combine shortening, margarine, egg, sugar, vanilla extract, peanut butter, and water. Mix well.
Add in flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix on lowest setting just until combined.

Form cookies into a ball with small scoop or by hand, and place 2 inches apart on either greased or parchment-lined cookie sheets. Flatten each ball with tines of fork making a criss-cross pattern.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10-16 minutes (depending on size of cookie), or until slightly browned on outside edge only.

Note: I baked mine for approximately 15 minutes, as I like them with a slight crunch.
