Superb Peanut Butter Cookies


I have tried many cookie recipes and this is by far the best peanut butter cookie!
This cookie literally melts in your mouth!  Yum!
And plus-you always have these ingredients on hand. Who doesn't ever have peanut butter, right? :)

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 stick of butter, softened
½ cup peanut butter
1/3 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of brown sugar, packed
1 large egg


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together the flour, soda, powder and salt. Beat the egg, butter, peanut butter and sugars for 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently fold in dry ingredients.
Form into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. (I always use parchment paper)  Dip a fork in sugar and press onto the cookie.

Bake on center rack for 11-12 minutes. This time may vary slightly depending on your oven.
You don’t want them to over bake! :)
Let rest for 1 minute, then transfer to cookie rack to cool completely.
Yield: 2 Dozen Cookies

Be safe and stay warm!
