Peanut Butter Cookies are one of my favorite baked goods. They are sweet but not too sweet and are amazing to eat at any time of the day. They are perfect for any season and will satisfy and sweet craving. Lets be honest, nothing beats a freshly baked warm cookie, and a cold glass of milk. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 pound unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Adjust your oven racks to the upper and lower position.* Prep your cookie sheets by lining them with parchment paper. In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer cream butter.** Once butter is creamed add in sugars. Beat sugars until butter and sugar is fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Beat in peanut butter. Fold in the dry ingredients until completely combined. Once cookie dough is completely mixed roll dough into approximately two inch balls and place on parchment paper. Leave 2-3” between each cookie and the edge of the pan because cookies will expand. Once your cookie sheet is full take a for and create the classic crisscross pattern with a fork. Place cookies in oven for 10-12 minutes. Once cookies are half way done switch the racks they are on and finish baking.

Pro Tip:

*If you adjust your oven racks to top and bottom you can cook two sheets of cookies at once, switching which racks when each sheet is half way done.

**Always remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you mix anything together
