Peanut Butter Cookies

Preheat oven to 350°F

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup Peanut Butter

1-1 1/2 cup flour

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up. Have a shallow bowl handy with sugar on the bottom.

Combine butter and both sugars together until smooth. Add in egg, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Grab a big spoonful of peanut butter and mix it all together. Slowly add flour until batter is not too sticky. Making small balls of dough and roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet. Flatten the cookies with a fork making a criss cross pattern.

Bake for 9-12 minutes depending on thickness.

*Do not over bake or it will be too crumbly when cooled. I usually take them out before the time is up and they are still mushy and let them cool long enough to harden.
