Peanut Butter Cookies



Ingredients

½ c. butter, room temp.

½ c. granulated sugar

½ c. brown sugar, packed

½ c. peanut butter

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 egg

1 ¼ c. all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. To bowl, add butter, both sugars, and peanut butter (I used creamy, but crunchy works too). Mix until everything is creamed together

  2. Sprinkle in baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well

  3. Add egg, and again mix

  4. Carefully add flour. Start mixing slowly to avoid flour from going everywhere. Mix until everything is well combined and dough forms

  5. Cover dough with cling wrap and refrigerate 2-3 hours, or until dough is firm

  6. Scoop out tbsp amounts of dough and roll into balls. Place about 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheet

  7. Use a fork to create criss-cross pattern on cookies to give them that iconic peanut butter cookie look

  8. Bake at 375 F for 10-12 minutes
