All American Peanut Butter Cookies

Every year Nate's grandparents' church compiles a bunch of recipes, and they make a cookbook out of them. You too can write or cook, if you wish. Just check out this site and work your way into it. Last year for Christmas, his grandma sent me one of the cookbooks as a gift.


Let me tell you, this cookbook has some of THE most delicious recipes around!


I was craving something sweet one day, and was in a baking mood (as usual) and I found this recipe for peanut butter cookies.. my FAVE!


Okay, so first you'll have to gather all of the necessary ingredients..




1 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla


Then you get started on these babies!


First, sift together flour and baking powder. Then, stir margarine to soften, mix in peanut butter until blended. Gradually add sugars, mixing until creamy and well blended. Beat in egg and vanilla. Then, stir all of this into the flour mixture.


Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and quickly press fork into tops of cookies. Cookie will crack around the edges.




I made some of these, and my best friend said she didn't want to eat the last one because that would mean they were all gone.


They're that good y'all! And they stay so soft like you just made them, even a couple of days later.


ENJOY! :)
