  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, combine butter, shortening and peanut butter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar; beat until combined. Add egg and vanilla; beat until combined. Gradually beat in as much flour mixture as possible; stir in the rest. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Roll in additional sugar, place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Press cookies with the bottom of a flat-bottomed glass to slightly flatten. Bake until centers are set and edges are crackled, 7 to 9 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
