Peanut Butter Cookies


Peanut butter cookies…one of my husband’s favorites! This is recipe #3 from my work’s cookie exchange.  Peanut butter cookies are simple and easy to make – especially since most of the ingredients are usually in your pantry!

1 ¼ cup flour
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream peanut butter, sugars and eggs together.  In  small bowl, combine the baking soda and baking powder and then combine into a larger bowl with the flour.

Add the peanut butter mixture to the dry mixture and combine well. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Chill for one hour in the refrigerator.

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
