3 dozen cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a mixer bowl, cream butter or margarine, peanut butter, brown sugar, and 1 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Gradually beat in your choice of mix-in's until just combined. If you want just peanut butter cookies, just skip this step.
  4. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough into remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar. Shape into balls. Place about 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with a fork dipped in the sugar.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are just set and are slightly firm to the touch. Do not over-bake. They will crisp up when cooled.
  6. Cool for one minute on cookie sheets. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
