No exaggeration these are the best peanut butter cookies. Use smooth or crunchy peanut butter. Makes 3 dozen cookies

1/2 cup Butter 125 mL
1/2 cup White sugar, packed 125 mL
1/2 cup Brown sugar, packed 125 mL
1/2 cup Peanut butter 125 mL
1 Large Egg, beaten 1
3/4 tsp Vanilla 4 mL
1-1/4 cups All-purpose flour 300 mL
3/4 tsp Baking soda 4 mL
1/4 tsp Salt 1 mL

Preheat oven 375°F [180°C].

  • In large bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter, white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt, then beat into butter mixture until blended. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar on top of dough and gently fold so sugar granules are still visible.
  • Roll dough into teaspoonful-size balls and place 2 inches [5 cm] apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Using a fork, press criss-cross. Bake 8 (for chewy) to 10 minutes (for crispy)
