Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe:
(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine (room temperature)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Additional granulated sugar (for rolling cookie dough in)
Mix butter, sugar and peanut butter together. Add eggs, flour, baking soda and vanilla extract. Roll dough into 1 inch (or a little larger) balls, roll in sugar, place on ungreased cookie sheet and use a fork to make a criss-cross design on top.
Bake at 350°F for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
