How To: Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

In my opinion, not much can go wrong when using peanut butter in the kitchen (hence this blog’s title). Peanut butter is a staple in my diet, giving mundane veggies a new life (ahem, celery) and even the most delicious fruit smoothies an extra kick. When baking, adding a bit (usually about 1/2 cup) of peanut butter to cookies will keep them chewy and moist. Today I was craving these classic peanut butter cookies

Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Beat in eggs.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss cross pattern.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for approximately 10 minutes until brown.
