Peanut Butter Cookies

Our local stores just had a case lot sale.  I bought a case of peanut butter at a great price so now I can make Peanut Butter Cookies!  A handful of these cookies and a glass of nice, cold, milk, are one of my kids' favorite after school snacks.  Mine too, truth be told. :)  These are easy to mix up and bake.

The kids are out for spud harvest right now, and I haven't been baking much.  When I asked what type of cookie we should make they chose these!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 C. Peanut Butter (smooth or chunky)
1 C. butter or margarine, softened
1 C. sugar
1 C. brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 3/4 - 3 C. flour

Cream butter and peanut butter until smooth.  Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Beat well.  Add flour 2 3/4 C. flour, salt and baking soda.  Mix well.  If the dough is too thin (needs to be thick enough to roll in a ball) add the other 1/4 C. flour.

Form into walnut sized balls, set on cookie sheet, press with the back of a fork to flatten and make the traditional criss-cross pattern.  Bake at 375 for 10-11 minutes.  Remove from cookie sheet and cool on baking rack.
