The Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookie

When I recently discovered that I’d lost my very best peanut butter cookie recipe, I went on the rampage/on the hunt for a new and better one. This is it! My 10-year-old grand-daughter Sydney made these as I looked on.

The Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookie:

1 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
3 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars about 5 min. or until no grainy feeling remains when you rub a little batter between finger and thumb. 
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Slowly add to batter, beating on low speed between additions. When well combined, beat in vanilla extract. 
Roll into balls the size of whole walnuts. Flatten using the floured 
bottom of a glass. Using a floured fork, make a criss-cross pattern on each cookie. Bake 6-to-7 min. for soft, puffy cookies and 10-to-12 min. for chewy ones, watching that the cookies don’t over-brown. Makes 4 dozen.

Sydney stands on a stool to measure the ingredients.

Success! Ready for the oven!
