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.
