Peanut Butter Cookies

Made these things over the weekend, basic peanut butter cookies. I topped them with a bit of chocolate powder for color and to be different. They turned out really well, but be warned.... you could feed an army (of kindergartners) with this recipe. It makes a ton!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies


1 c butter
1 c peanut butter
1 c sugar
1 c packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2.5 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt


Cream together the butters and sugars plus the eggs until light and fluffy: 
Then add the flour and rest of the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly, then refridgerate for 1 hour. 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Form the chilled dough into 1" balls. Flatten in 2 directions with a fork to create a crisscross pattern. 
Bake for 10 minutes or until they begin to brown. Remove from pan and allow to cool for a minute or two.

To add the chocolate powder, take a fork and dip it into the powder, shake off most of it. Then over the cookie, turn the fork over and tap off the excess! You can do this with cinnamon as well. 

If you don't want to do the chocolate dust, sprinkle the cookies with white sugar.
