Peanut Butter Cookies

This is an old family recipe for Peanut Butter cookies. It's one of my favorites! Sometimes I add a bag of Reese's Peanut Butter chips for an extra Peanut Buttery cookie, or a cup of Peanut Butter chips and a cup of milk chocolate chips. But they are also good just plain, with the traditional criss-cross with fork tines over the top before baking! Yum! Bet ya can't eat just one!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 12-oz. pkge. Peanut Butter chips or Milk chocolate chips or 1 cup of each
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter together. Then add eggs, and beat well. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl, and then add to creamed mixture slowly. Hand stir chips in at this point, if adding.
Next, drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet. With the tines of a fork, make criss-cross on the top, (this helps flatten the cookies a little so I do even when adding chips) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until just starting to brown around the edges. Remove from oven and let sit on cookies sheet for a minute or two, then remove to cooling rack. Enjoy while warm with a glass of milk! Yum-a - licious!
