This is THE ONLY peanut butter cookie recipe you will ever need – deliciously addictive! My good friend Jean gave me this family recipe, from her Aunt Grace, and we have always called them “Jean’s Aunt Grace’s PB Cookies” …
1 cup butter (or margarine)
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Beat butter, peanut butter and sugars until light, fluffy, creamy and smooth. Add eggs, vanilla and beat until a little frothy.
In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients together.
Combine dry ingredients with butter sugar mixture and incorporate – you may have to work the last bit with your hands until the batter is smooth and holding together.
Form small balls and place on cookie sheet. (I like to use parchment paper) Press a fork (dipped in flour) both ways on the cookie to create a cross pattern.
Bake at 350 for 10-16 minutes.
