My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

     I have a weakness for peanut butter cookies. I have fond memories of my mother making
     them for me when I was a little girl. She would make batches of them and all of my  -
     relatives would come over and pick up a dozen. My children today adore this cookie just
     like their mom did. Simple and nostalgic always wins. What is your favorite cookie?

                                                    My Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

                                                    1 1/4 cups creamy peanut butter
                                                    1 cup butter - room temperature
                                                    1 cup brown sugar
                                                    1 cup white sugar
                                                    2 eggs
                                                    1 teaspoon vanilla
                                                    2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
                                                    1 teaspoon baking powder
                                                    1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
                                                    1/2 teaspoon salt
                                                   1/4 cup sugar to roll the cookie dough in before baking

           1) In a large bowl cream together, peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, white sugar.
           Beat in eggs and vanilla.

           2) In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
           Mix into batter. Place in a refrigerator to cool for 30 to 40 minutes.

           3) Roll into 1 inch balls and roll into the sugar and flatten with a fork in a
           criss cross pattern. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes. Do not over
                              Light, chewy, buttery and crisp - everything you want in a cookie.
