Peanut Butter Cookies

These are my favorite cookies.  There is something calming and comforting about a peanut butter cookie.  These always turn out wonderful.  I know you will love them.

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla

sugar

Mix butter and peanut butter for 30 seconds.  Add 1/2 cup of the flour, sugars, egg, baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla.  Add in the remaining flour.  Cover and chill if needed for easier handling.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar.  Cris-Cross each dough ball with a fork.

Bake at 375 oven for 9 minutes.  Makes about 3 dozen.
