Peanut Butter Cookies

I got this recipe out of a cook book in junior high while taking home economics. This is the best peanut butter cookie recipe that I have ever eaten and easy to make. If you are allergic to peanuts you can still make these cookies using Soy Bean Peanut Butter. It is sold at Wal-Mart and my family thinks it taste almost as good as real peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cream butter and add sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar gradually, until light and fluffy. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Add flour mixture gradually, beating after each addition until smooth. Drop mixture, 1 tsp. at a time about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Press with a fork that has been dipped in flour making crisscross marks. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 min. or until done. Let cool for about 2 min. and then remove with spatula. This makes about 24 cookies.
We love to put a little butter on them while warm. And for those of you that are allergic to peanuts, substitute the peanut butter with soy butter. (Wal Mart is the only place that I have found the soy butter. It is in the peanut butter section.) Hope you enjoy.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to email me at Until next time...
