    Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

    1 cup margarine
    1 cup peanut butter
    1 cup white sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two cookie sheets.
    In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Use a wet fork dipped in sugar to make the crisscrosses on the top.
    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Grab a glass of milk and enjoy!

    This is the easy recipe i use..

    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 cup butter (1 stick) room temperature
    1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 jumbo egg, or 2 small eggs
    1 1/2 cups peanut butter, creamy or chunky
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1/2 cup chopped peanuts, optional
    1/2 granulated sugar for rolling, optional

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with vegetable shortening. Set aside.
    Blend flour and baking soda together in bowl and set aside.
    Using a paddle attachment in a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy.
    Add brown and granulated sugars and beat until fluffy. Scrape bowl.
    Beat in egg/s, peanut butter and vanilla and beat again. Scrape bowl.
    With mixer on low-medium, add flour and baking soda and blend well.
    Add optional peanuts.
    Measure out Tablespoon size balls of dough using a spoon or a cookie scoop. Roll balls in sugar. Place cookies on prepared baking sheet and press down lightly, not too thin.
    Using the back of a fork, press lightly into cookies, then turn fork and press again making a criss-cross pattern Peanut Butter Cookies are famous for.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, more or less, until firm and edges are very lightly browned. Do not over bake.
    Transfer to cooling racks. When completely cool, store in air tight container.
    Makes 24-30 peanut butter cookies.

    1 cup of natural (100% peanuts) peanut butter
    1/2 cup of sugar (any kind or a mix. I like half brown half white)
    1 large egg
    a pinch of salt

    Mix together until combined. Form into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Flatten balls to about the thickness you would like them to turn out as, since they barely spread.

    Bake at 350 degreees for 8-12 minutes depending on the thickness. They won’t brown very much. They will be VERY VERY soft out of the oven but will firm up in 10 minutes.

    Makes 12 cookies.

    You can add chocolate chips if you like. I use half a cup of chocolate chips and decrease the sugar to 1/3 cup.
