Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Yesterday was my awesome hubby’s birthday! He is a little peanut butter obsessed so I made him peanut butter cookies instead of a cake.  I grabbed one of the first recipes I found off Google- I actually really liked the recipe, and better yet, so did C!  Here is the recipe:

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 4 dozen cookies

1 c butter

1 c crunchy peanut butter (I only had the natural creamy version and it worked just fine)

1 c white sugar

1 c brown sugar

2 eggs

2 1/2 c flour

1 t baking powder

1/2 t salt

1 1/2 t baking soda

Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars.  Beat in eggs.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.

Yes, I prefer to make the cookie sheet look like it has pokadots on it, rather than perfectly line the cookie dough up, don’t judge!
