    These are SO yummy! What can I say? Last week was a difficult week for me. I haven't baked in ages, but I just had to make me some cookies -- FYI Dear Hubby doesn't like peanut butter. heheheheh Nuff said. :cool:

    BEST PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES IN THE WORLD
    TIME: 30 mins YIELD: 24-36 cookies

    1⁄2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
    1 cup packed light brown sugar
    3⁄4 cup Jiff creamy peanut butter (I didn't use Jiff)
    1 egg
    1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla

    1 1⁄4 cups flour
    1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
    1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
    1⁄4 teaspoon salt
    granulated sugar to roll dough in

    In large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter until well blended. Add egg and vanilla, beat well.
    In small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to peanut butter mixture, beat until well blended. Heat oven to 350 F (177°C).

    Shape dough into 1-1/4 inch balls, roll balls in granulated sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. With the tines of a fork, flatten ball. Flatten again in opposite direction, forming crisscross marks.

    Bake 9 to 10 minutes until light brown and cookie is set. Cool slightly, Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

    Notes: Only use real butter and Jiff Peanut Butter. Don't overcook. Use Air cookie sheets for baking. (I used regular ole cookie sheets, with parchment paper for easy release.)

    I've almost got everything! It's funny how I always seem to have everything but gluten free flour. Then when I get the flour, I'm out of everything else lol! I wonder if soap gremlins have cookie gremlin cousins?

    Things are much better and so am I. Thank you for your kind thoughts, Saffron.

    Oh, I don't think so. Soap Gremlins are in a League of Their Own! Nasty little buggers. LOL

    OMG Zany! Your right, these are the best! I finally got to make them today! Of course I didn't have everything (lol I never seem to). I'm becoming the queen of substituting lol. I made a half recipe. For the brown sugar, I substituted 1/2 a cup of white sugar with 1 tablespoon of honey. One cup of sugar plus 2 tablespoons of molasses was the substitute Google recommended for brown sugar but of course I didn't have molasses lol. These cookies are so good and chewy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. It's a new favorite.
