Found this recipe in my recipe 'basket' . . . have no idea where it came from but it's our favorite.


  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.
  2. Beat in eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Stir into batter.
  5. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  6. Roll into 1" balls and put on baking sheet.
  7. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
  8. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.

Absolutely perfect peanut butter cookies. I followed as written, but used smooth peanut butter as my kids don't like nuts as of yet!!! I also cut the recipe in half and it still made 3 dozen cookies. I used my cookie scoop to make things easier. Will definitely repeat this in the future. Made for 123 tag. Thanks Galley for sharing.

mmmmmmmm super yummy cookies! I used smooth peanut butter instead of crunchy, but only because some of my older family members don't do nuts very well. Everyone loved the flavor and texture! It's a keeper! Thanks so much!
