Our favorite peanut butter cookies!
The original recipe was from one of mom's cookbooks, but after some tweaking, we came up with this version. A delicious summer snack with some cold lemonade!
Powers' Family Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1 cup Peanut Butter
2 large Eggs
1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Freshly Ground Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 cups butterscotch or white chocolate chips, optional
Cream the butter & sugars. Add the peanut butter & eggs.
Mix the dry ingredients then add to the peanut butter mixture. Mix all 'till well blended.
Roll into tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork (that has been dipped in some flour) in a crosshatch pattern (If chips are added this step can be skipped).
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
