1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease cookie sheets.
Cream shortening, sugars, peanut butter, and beaten egg.
Combine dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture.
Fold in marshmallows.
Form into balls about 1 inch in diameter.
Place balls on prepared pans.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
I also had a problem with the marshmallow in these cookies. The dough is not the type you can fold the marshmallows into. However I am going to retry these and take a pinch of dough and flatten it in my hand and place one or two marshmallow in the dough and then fold over and roll into a ball. I think this will work. These cookies have a great flavor and everybody who tried them went back for more. Worth the try!

Marshmallows ruined the recipe. They made a mess of the pan & ended up with burnt edges from the marshmallows that spilled out of the cookies. That never happened to me before any time I've ever made ccokies. This was the first time I ever made a bad batch. I don't plan on ever making these again
