Peanut Butter Cookies

My husband requested his mother’s peanut butter cookies.  So, she recommended I try Simply Recipes recipe for them.

They were very simple to make and my husband loved them.

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter (her recipe says 1/2 cup)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Beat the butter until smooth and creamy. I like my butter to look white and fluffy.  Add the sugars 1/4 cup at a time, beating the entire time.  Beat in the peanut butter until smooth.  Add the egg.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the peanut butter mixture, slowly.  A little at a time.
  3. Chill the dough for a minimum of 3 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375.
  5. Shape the dough into 1 1/4 inch sized balls.  Flatten on an ungreased cookie sheet spacing them 2-inches apart with a fork.
  6. Bake for 9-10 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.

Yields: 36 cookies
