Peanut Butter Cookies

Don't ask me why, but I like making cookies and desserts. I hate peanut butter. It's a texture thing. I love peanut butter cookies, though. Go figure. Here's a recipe I tried a few weeks ago.

Heat the oven to 375 F.

In a large bowl --

Mix till smooth:
1 C butter
1 C peanut butter
2 C dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla

Blend in:
2 1/2 C sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder

Make the dough into 1-inch balls and put on a cookie sheet -- flatten the balls with a fork dipped in granulated sugar in a criss-cross pattern.

Bake ten minutes, more or less, until brown at edges.

I'm sure I've seen this one before, just because I can't get hold of any peanut butter!!
