Peanut Butter Cookies

Every time I have these cookies I think of my Aunt. These were always her specialty and my favorite. She still spoils me and makes me a batch when I go back home. I love the ease of making them yet the big punch of a taste they have. Simple and delicious and that is what makes a good cookie friends.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Cream sugars, butter, and peanut butter in large mixing bowl with a hand/stand mixer on low speed. Beat in egg then add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

2. Shape dough into small balls; place on lightly greased 15-inch x 10-inch baking sheets. Press the dough balls down with a fork to make ridges down the center, dip the fork in flour each time before pressing a cookie.

3. Bake at 350 F for about 12 minutes or until cookie’s have slightly browned.

Yields: 2 dozen
