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 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!
Thanks for stopping by!!
