 amazing peanut butter cookie recipe?

I bought one of those packaged PB cookie bags once and they were SO soft and chewy...I think my husband ate almost all of them in one sitting, lol. That's saying a lot because he does not care for sweets!

I want to make them on my own! Anyone know of a good recipe?

I have an awesome one! I took them to work one time and I even had people pay me to make them for them to take home :) It's at home though and I'm at work, so I'll post it when I get off tonight

Lol...me too...

Honestly PB cookies are the one I rarely ever make...I think that was the only time I've ever made them!

I decided to buy store brand PB though and it grosses me out so I want to find some way to use it.

Expert Tips

For a special treat, sandwich two of these all-time favorites together with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Roll the edge in chopped candy bar or nuts.

Want the perfect bumpy top on your cookies? Wipe off any excess dough and sugar that may collect between the tines of the fork.

 Okay, here's the recipe :)

 

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

1 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

3 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. (If I have time I refrigerate the dough for a little bit) Roll into one-inch balls. Roll balls in white sugar. Place on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, makinga  criss-cross pattern. Bake for about 10 minutes.

My fiance's favorite is when I add chocolate chips to them too :)
