OLD-FASHIONED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES


Ingredients
  • 1 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. light brown sugar
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
Directions
  1. Place butter and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl; beat with a stand mixer or electric mixer at medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. While continuing to beat, gradually add brown sugar and granulated sugar; beat until well combined.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until incorporated. Add peanut butter and beat until combined.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; mix on low speed until just combined.
  4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place on a cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in granulated sugar; repeat with the fork turned perpendicular to the first marks to create a cross-hatch pattern.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for about 9 minutes, or until very lightly browned.
