In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a separate large bowl, using an electric mixer, combine peanut butter, shortening and vanilla. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and continue beating until well combined. Add dry ingredients, 1/2 cup at a time, beating until dough is firm. Use a tablespoon to make 1-inch balls of dough and place 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using a fork, press down on each cookie twice, making a crisscross pattern on top of cookie.
