Peanut Butter Cookies

It's that time of the year again...
Sweet aromas filling your home from all those yummy goodies you  have been baking. And happy little faces, pleased with the results!

I thought I would share a simple recipe with you. Nothing too fancy, but maybe it will help you kick off your baking season and get your juices flowing to make more! I like to bake a few times a week, mainly because my Hubby is always asking if I made him something special... So here it is, my first cookie of this Holiday season, but certainly not the last!

Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (I have a yummy Homemade Brown Sugar Recipe)
1 egg (at room temperature)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup flour
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream butters and sugars together until smooth; add beaten egg. Add the dry ingredients (sift before adding). Scoop a small spoon full (I used a small ice cream scooper) and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, until they look nicely browned. Cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes then move to cooling rack to let sit for another 10 minutes. Then ENJOY!

I used a yummy family recipe and can't wait to try out more!
