Big Grandma's Best Peanut Butter Cookies

"This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!"

    I used butter instead of crisco. Instead of 1 cup each of brown sugar and granulated sugar, I used 1 1/2C brown sugar and 1/2C granulated. I added an extra half cup of peanut butter (for a person who really wants that peanut butter taste and isn't usually satisfied, adding extra helps a lot). I used 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder. I used 2 tsp. Vanilla. I always use temperature eggs in my cookie recipes. Lastly, for fun, I added 2 cups of crushed Butterfingers. They come like that in the section at the store where you get chocolate chips, but you can accomplish the same thing by just crushing the candy bars. These cookies are moist, chewy, very peanutty and ultra yummy! They're a very big hit.
