Peanut Butter Cookies

Wow. I have tried several peanut butter cookie recipes, but this one is my favorite so far. Tawnie sent me a link to this recipe and I traced it back to this website where it was posted a couple of years ago. Thanks, Tawnie! They are fabulous! I didn't have any peanut butter chips so I just used chocolate chips.


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 Tbsp. milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips

For sprinkling: 1 tablespoon sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, vanilla, milk and egg. Mix. Add peanut butter. Mix until relatively smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then mix all together wet & dry. Add chips if desired. Roll dough into ball and roll into sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press gently with a fork to criss cross. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies will just be starting to golden on top and may appear to be underdone. Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

Tried these yesterday and it will now be my only p.b. cookie recipe. Can't wait to try them with p.b. chips since I only used chocolate this time.
