Peanut Butter Cookies

What I love about this recipe is that it makes a large amount of cookies. You can also vary the cookies to make it fun! This can make the Classic Peanut Butter Cookies with the criss cross pattern, ones with Hershey kisses in the middle, or just drizzle chocolate over the top. You can also turn this recipe into Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies.

• 1 ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 ¼ cup packed brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
3. Use an ice cream scoop to portion the cookie dough onto the greased cookie sheet. Do not place more than 6 unbaked cookies onto the cookie sheet at a time. Bake at 375 degrees for 13 minutes.
