  • Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

    Preheat oven to 300F

    In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt . Mix well with a wire whisk. Set aside.

    In a large bowl blend sugars together using an electric mixer set at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a
    grainy paste, scaping the sides of the bowl. Add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla and mix st medium speed until light and fluffy.

    Add the flour mixture and mix at low speed until just mixed. Do not over mix.

    Drop by rounded tablespoons on to an ungreased cookie sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart. With a wet fork gently press a crisscross pattern on top cookies. Bake 18-22 minutes until cookies are lightly browned along the edges. Con't below

  • Transfer cookies immediately to cool surface with a spatula.

    As a variation add 2 cups coarsely chopped semi sweet chocolate bar or semi sweet chocolate chips to the flour mixture then bake as directed.

    This recipe will make 3 1/2 dozen cookies

    Hope you enjoy!
