Peanut Butter Cookies

Posted on 04 April 2012 by Cathy

I learned to bake when I was young because I had a sweet tooth and my mother did not bake. I created this cookie recipe for my great-grandmother Bessie Hudson. She could not wait to start eating them as I was measuring everything out.  She would actually sample one as I would pull them out of the oven. It was always fun waiting for baked good to be cool enough to eat. These cookies were her all time favorite.











1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla











Measure out sugar into a large mixing bowl











Add brown sugar











Add butter and peanut butter then cream it all together











Add the vanilla











Beat in eggs











In a separate bowl add flour and baking powder











baking soda











Add salt then sift all the dry ingredients together











Stir the dry ingredients into batter and put into refrigerator for 1 hour










Grab a spoon of dough











Form into 1 inch balls and put on parchment lined baking sheets











Flatten each ball with a fork











Make a criss-cross pattern by pressing the other way











Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown











Let them cool completely and try not to eat them all in one cookie monster session
