Baseball Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup butter flavored shortening
1/3 cup peanut oil
2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup smooth peanut butter
5 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups sifted confectioners sugar
8 Tablespoons mil
Red purchased decorating icing.


For cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream first 4 ingredients until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth. Stir in peanut butter. In another large bowl, stir together flour and salt. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture; stir until a soft dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out dough to 1/4" inch thickness. Use a 3 inch round cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack with waxed paper underneath to cool completely. For icing, stir together sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Ice cookies. Allow icing to harden. Use a small round tip to pipe red icing on cookies to resemble stitching on baseballs. Allow icing to harden. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
