And here's the recipe:
~2 1/2 Cups flour
~1/2 tsp. baking powder
~1/2 tsp. baking soda
~1/2 tsp. salt
~1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter
~1 cup packed brown sugar
~1 cup white sugar
~1 cup peanut butter
~2 large eggs
~2 tsp. vanilla
~Preheat oven to 350
~Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside,
~Beat butter and sugars together until fluffy (about 3 minutes), scraping down the bowl as necessary
~Beat in peanut butter until fully incorporated
~Beat in eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla.
~Slowly mix in dry ingredients.
~Scoop balls with about 1.5 Tbsp. dough per scoop and drop onto baking sheet.
~Press criss-crossed patter into the top of each ball (this is what the recipe says but I did this once and the pattern baked out of the cookies, so I don't do it anymore)
~Bake 10-12 minutes (I'm not sure how true this timing is because I don't time my cookies, I just keep an eye on them) until cookies are puffed and slightly brown around the edges but not on top. The cookies won't look done
~Cool on sheet for 5 minutes and transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Something I learned from one of my friends from high school is to put cookies (whatever kind) in an airtight container with a piece of bread and that makes the cookies soft (if that's something you like).
And here's the cutest picture ever of my daughter and my handsome puppy. Aren't they cute? It's a lot harder than you'd think to get both of them to look good in the same picture haha.
