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
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.
