The BEST peanut butter cookies 

"These peanut butter cookies are the best ones i've ever had"
                                                     quote from Stefany Pratt
 I made 96 of these, but here is the original recipe of 48 cookies.

  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda

The Directions

  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.

These are best with milk. They are Really good. When I made them, they needed no adjustment from the recipe.
