Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup granulated sugar plus additional for rolling

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add in eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add dry ingredients into peanut butter mixture, and mix thoroughly. Cover cookie dough with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

Using a cookie scoop or disher, portion cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in white sugar, and place on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork dipped in sugar, making a criss-cross pattern (alternately, dip the bottom of a glass in sugar and flatten cookie). Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown around edges. Do not over-bake.
