Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies
recipe from here
3/4 C butter at room temperature
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
1/2 C sugar
1 C peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 C sugar (for coating)

Start by creaming the butter. Then add the brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar and cream together.
Beat in the peanut butter.
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until combined. Mix in the vanilla extract.
Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and combine well.
This is what the dough looks like finished. It’s a nice moist dough, not too wet, but also not dry.
Pour the remaining 1/4 C sugar in a small bowl. Take a heaping tablespoon of and form into a ball. Coat the ball in sugar by rolling it around in the bowl. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Press the tines of a fork into the balls to create the cross-cross pattern on the top and to flatten the dough just a bit. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly brown around the bottom edges

These look delicious and I like the fact that all the yummy goo is enclosed in the cookie dough making it so much easier to eat! I will be making these with chocolate peanut butter.
