Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is from The Wellesley Cookie Exchange Cookbook.

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
11/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light. Add the egg and beat until fluffy.

Blend the flour, baking powder, soda and salt together well. Add these dry ingredients to butter mixture. Chill dough slightly.

Roll dough into one inch balls and place an inch apart on a light greased cookie sheet. Press with a fork forming a crisscross pattern.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Pour milk and wait for the oven to beep. Enjoy!
