Peanut Butter Cookies

Over Memorial Day weekend, my husband and I visited my son and his family.  While we were there, we went to a coffee shop that had some great bakery items.  I bought a peanut butter cookie, a chocolate chip cookie, and an oatmeal craisin cookie.  They were all quite good, but my favorite was the peanut butter cookie.

In honor of their delicious cookie, I made some last night.

Those are Reese's chips you see in the dough.

I made some for a friend, some I took to work, and some my husband took to coffee for his friends.

Here's how I made them:

1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
Sugar for sprinkling on top of cookie

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.

Cream the butter and peanut butter together.  Add sugar and brown sugar and cream together.  Add the eggs and mix into butter and sugar mixture.  After eggs are incorporated, mix in the dry ingredients approximately a third at a time.  Stir in peanut butter chips.

Roll into whatever size cookie you want.  Flatten with your hand.  Press a criss-cross pattern on top of cookie with a fork.  Sprinkle with sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, depending on size of cookie.
