Cookie Jar Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe by ciao4293
READY IN: 27mins
YIELD: 60 cookies




  • Heat oven to 350°.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  • Cream the butter, shortening, and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, then mix in the peanut butter.
  • Add the flour mixture by the cupful and beat at low speed to mix well.
  • Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets (I line the sheets with parchment paper) about 2 inches apart.
  • Press each cookie twice in each direction with a lightly floured fork to make a crosshatch design.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes.
  • ***Do not overbake--they will still be a bit pale, but if you overbake, they won't be chewy on the inside.
  • ***Use a spatula to transfer to a rack to cool.
