Peanut Butter Cookies

Ben's birthday was last month (his last SINGLE birthday at that!).  I love to make people's favorite dessert for their birthday whether it's ice cream, cake, cookies, mousse, whatever!  One of Ben's all time favorite desserts is peanut butter cookies.  Not to brag, but I have a pretty darn good, fail-proof recipe for them!  They are light and crispy with a nice peanut flavor!  Yummy!!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 36 cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
3 eggs, room temperature
1 cup natural-style peanut butter, room temperature ( Smucker's works best)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  3. Cream sugars and butter together until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter to the creamed mixture. Blend until well mixed.
  5. Add dry ingredients into the creamed mixture until just mixed together.
  6. Dropped onto a greased cookie sheet. To make the criss-cross pattern, dip fork into water and press into cookie in a perpendicular pattern.
  7. Bake until edges turn golden brown about 12 minutes.
