Peanut Butter Cookies (via The Cookie Bible)
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Cream the butter, peanut butter and the sugars until fluffy. Add in the eggs. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients. Gradually add in the dry mixture until all combined. Refrigerate for about an hour. Preheat oven to 375*F. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and use a fork to make a crisscross pattern on top. Bake for about 10 minutes or until they begin to brown.
NOTE: I ran out of eggs when I was making these so instead I just added in a 1/4 cup of milk and the cookies came out perfectly.
NOTE: I don’t refrigerate the dough, instead I just dive right in and roll it into balls and bake.
NOTE: I always have a bowl of sugar when I roll the dough into balls. I take the each ball of dough, roll it into the sugar, use the fork for the crisscross pattern, and finally sprinkle a little more sugar right on top.
