"The old-fashioned taste of these crisp, peanut buttery cookies is irresistible," reports Jessie MacLeod of St. Stephen, New Brunswick. "And they're as quick to make as they are to disappear. I often double the recipe."

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Additional sugar

Directions

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. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned and cookies are set. Yield: about 4 dozen.
Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.

"As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love classic cookie recipes! Simple ingredients and great crisp cookie! My teenage son prepared, quick to prepare. He skipped chilling because in a rush, with no difficulties. For us, removed from oven before minimum time. He loved them!"

"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!"

"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."
