7 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp

1 1/4 cups peanut butter (Jif creamy) 

3/4 cup white sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1.5 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder  

1/2 teaspoon salt

2.5 inch ice cream scoop

Parchment paper

Large serving fork utensil 

Directions

Note: Peanut butters vary in texture, flavor, sweetness.  If using a different type, the outcome may be different.

Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Mix in the eggs 1 at a time and add the vanilla.  

 

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together and then gradually mix into the wet mixture.  

 

Preheat oven to 375.

Scoop the batter and drop 

onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Press the serving fork into cookies in a criss-cross pattern to flatten some. 

Bake in center of oven for 14-15 minutes, until edges are lightly browned.  Remove and let cool completely on the cookie sheet.

 

For super peanut buttery taste, add peanut butter morsels.
