These are my favorite peanut butter cookies. We always double the batch because the get eaten so quickly!
I use natural peanut butter with no hydrogenated oil, real butter, and unbleached flour. It makes them a little bit better for you.
|1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
||1-1/4 cups flour|
|1/2 cup peanut butter||1/2 tsp. baking powder|
|1/2 cup sugar||3/4 tsp. baking soda|
|1/2 brown sugar||1/4 tsp. salt|
Mix butter, peanut butter, sugars, and egg thoroughly. Blend all dry ingredients and mix into butter mixture.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into 1-1/4″ balls. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten balls with a fork dipped in flour, making a crisscross pattern on top. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
