I have a "thing" for cookies. Homemade cookies, to be exact. Soft, slightly under done homemade cookies. These babies fit the bill. If you reeaally want to take them over the top (and I mean, why wouldn't you?) dip half of each cookie in melted milk chocolate!!!! Yes, I'm serious.
1 cup butter; room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour (for my high altitude friends: add an additional 3-4 Tbsp)
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
Additional sugar for rolling dough balls in
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Cream butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add both sugars and mix until combined. Add one egg at a time and vanilla extract. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to wet mixture and stir just until combined.
Using a Tablespoon, scoop balls of dough on to a lined baking sheet. Roll into balls and roll in granulated sugar. Use a fork to make signature criss-cross on the top. Bake for 10-12 min.
