I felt like baking something but I did not want it lingering around the house so I made a little deal with my sister. I told her I would bake her something as long as she stopped by and picked it up once she got off of work, and being the wonderfully nice sister that I am I even let her pick what she wanted. Her request was really soft peanut butter cookies. My recipe search ended with me picking a recipe from my favorite recipe swapping site, Bakespace.
These cookies were very quick to mix together and take minimal ingredients. They are not the famous 4 ingredient peanut butter cookies that I have heard so many raves about but all the ingredients that this recipe called for are staples in my pantry. I did not try any of these so I can't vouch for how good they are but my sister said they were really good. :)
Super Soft Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup margarine, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1. Combine margarine, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Blend together very well.
2. Add flour, baking soda and salt with mixer. Chill dough 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Roll into balls by hand.
3. Place on sprayed cookie sheet. Using a fork, press down the balls and create a criss cross pattern. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until edges very lightly browning (about 7 to 10 minutes). Don't overcook.
