Peanut Butter Cookies

Jon LOVES Peanut Butter Cookies and I totally thought I had some on here. Bob and I made some not too long ago. At least it seemed liked not too long ago, but now I think it must have been quite a while, because they definitely aren't here!

Jon also likes his cookies crisp. But he's really the only one who does. So these are also crisp... just for Jon. (hoping for awesome wife points here)

Peanut Butter Cookies
2 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 C peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 C butter, softened
3/4 C granulated sugar
1 1/4 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
additional sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350F.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.
Beat butter and peanut butter together until well combined. Add sugars and beat well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in flour mixture.
Form dough into one inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. (If the dough is too soft to roll, put it in the refrigerator for an hour.) Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Gently press each ball with the tines of a fork to make criss-cross marks in each cookie.
Bake at 350F for 10 - 12 minutes. Cool on rack.
Enjoy!

Actually, I think I baked these while Jon was at band practice or jam night or something. So he didn't even have any until the next day. But we all sampled them to make sure they were ok!

Crispy... peanut buttery... lots of peanut chunks from the extra chunky peanut butter... Just how he likes them!

Sampling is a must-you need to make sure they are edible....or just because you like warm cookies. I'm in favor of the second one, but telling him the first one.

Your cookies look yummy!!! Peanut butter cookies are a favorite of mine, maybe even my number one favorite! Jon is a lucky guy to get peanut butter cookies just the way he likes them!

Mmmm, pb cookies. Awesome. My girlfriend likes them crispy too, so I usually do one tray of chewy and one of crispy so we both get what we want.
