Nothing better than baking cookies on a cold warm blustery day. With an old farm house and lots of drafty windows, it sure helps to take the chill out. This is a simple recipe I have been making for years. I don’t know where I originally got it.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/4 cup flour, sift or stir before measuring
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Sift together flour salt and baking powder, set aside. Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars; beat in vanilla and egg. Stir flour mixture, blending well. Shape mixture into 3/4 inch balls; place on greased baking sheets.
Flatten each cookie with the tines of a fork; dip fork in flour periodically to keep it from sticking to the peanut butter cookie dough.
Bake peanut butter cookies at 375 Degrees for 10-12 minutes.
