Chocolate Butterflies

These are some of my favorite cookies in the world! My Mom loved them when she was a little girl too. They have a cake like texture so they are nice and soft! They freeze well, so you can make a big batch and pull them out as you need them.

Cream together:
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. shortening
2-2/3 c. sugar
4 eggs
3 tsp. vanilla

Add alternately:
2/3 c. milk
4 c. flour
2/3 c. cocoa
4 tsp. baking powder

Drop by teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheets. Press crisscrosses with fork dipped in water. Bake 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Makes 8 dozen.
