Recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies:
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cp Peanut Butter ( any kind )
1/2 cp margarine, or butter - softened
1 1/4 cp flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup peanut butter chips ( optional )
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix brown sugar, butter, Peanut Butter, and egg.
Add dry ingredients and chips, if using them. Shape dough into 1 to 1/2 inch balls. Dip top of balls in granulated sugar. Place sugar side up on ungreased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart.
Bake 9-10 minutes until golden, cool 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheets.
DO NOT FLATTEN tops for this recipe, and do not criss cross either. These spread out and get those crackle tops as regular cookies do. If you make the balls perfectly round, they will look like professional bakery cookies.. yummy, yummy for your tummy
