The BEST Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
Okay, I know everyone says "my recipe is the best peanut butter cookie recipe ever" and I am sure they mean it but to me and my family, ours really is the best. :-)
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 (16 oz.) jar peanut butter 1 1/4 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar 1 c. sugar
1/2 c. margarine 2 eggs
2 tsp. baking soda 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/8 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Form mixture into small balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Now take a fork, dip it in some sugar and make crisscross marks on each ball and gently flatten. You do not need to flatten them much, they will spread out nicely on their own.
Now bake for exactly 9 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes then remove to a plate. These are especially good if you eat them right away.
Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies (about 2 1/2-3" in size).
