YIELD: 36 cookies
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter or shortening, room temperature
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350⁰F.
In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda and salt. Use a whisk to mix ingredients together and then set aside.
Using a large bowl and wooden spoon, cream together the butter and both sugars.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until well combined, and then add the vanilla and peanut butter, and mix again until combined.
Add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture and fold in until well combined.
Use a teaspoon to place small sized drops (about 1″ sphere) of dough on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Dip a fork in a small bowl of flour and use it to flatten the dough with a fork.
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
