June 12th is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!
I figured that we had to celebrate with yummy Peanut Butter Cookies! I had to make these while John was at work otherwise they would not last long enough to take a picture of them. John is a huge peanut butter fan. I am pretty sure John would eat peanut butter all day if he had the chance. That or Nutella but that is a whole other story.
Here is the recipe for the yummy Peanut Butter Cookies I made.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup Peanunt Butter (I used a heaping half cup for my recipe)
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Beat the egg until creamy (about 2 minutes), add in the sugars, beat for an additional 2 minutes.
Mix in the peanut butter and the egg
Mix together the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt>
Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar butter mixture
Shape dough into balls, place about 3 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheet
flatten with a criss cross pattern with fork
Bake until light brown, approx 9-10 minutes
Cool on baking sheets for a minute, transfer to rack to cool completely
makes about 2 dozen cookies
