1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
8 dozen pretzel twists
8 dozen pretzel sticks

Beat peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, honey and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda and baking powder. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (dough will be slightly sticky). For each cookie, place 2 pretzel twists side by side with the bottoms (the bottom comes to a rounded point, similar to the bottom of a heart shape ) touching on ungreased cookie sheet. Place 1 ball of dough on center, and flatten slightly. Break 2 pretzel sticks in half. Gently press 3 pretzel stick halves into dough for stripes on bee. Break fourth pretzel piece in half. Poke pieces into 1 end of dough for antennae. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
