- 2 cups all-purpose flour (9 ounces)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter (room temperature)
- 3/4 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar (firmly packed)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Gather the ingredients.
In a bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Beat together the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, or about 2 to 4 hours.
Take tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into balls with hands. Place about 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Using a dinner fork dipped in flour, lightly press cookies, flattening and forming a criss-cross pattern on each cookie.
Bake at 375 F until golden brown, or about 10 to 12 minutes.
Cool on baking sheets for a minute then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
- Fold in about 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts to the batter just before baking.
- For a salty and sweet twist, try potato chip cookies.
