Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add peanut butter, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda and baking powder; add to creamed mixture and mix well. For easier shaping, chill the dough for 1 hour. Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball by crisscrossing with the tines of a fork dipped in sugar.

Our church has a "cookie walk" every few months as a fundraiser. This was the first time I made this recipe, and I really like the way they came out-very thin, but with a perfect amount of peanut butter. My husband, the cookie expert, gave it a thumbs-up!

MY REVIEW

Our church has a "cookie walk" every few months as a fundraiser. These cookies were thinner than the usual peanut butter cookies, but full of flavor! The amount of peanut butter was just perfect. I doubled the recipe as suggested, and they got a thumbs-up from my husband, the cookie expert.
