Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 1/2  cup  peanut butter
  • 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar or 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1  egg
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  •  Granulated sugar
Directions

1. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. If necessary, cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in additional granulated sugar to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using the tines of a fork, flatten balls by making crisscross marks on top. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes about 36 cookies.
