Peanut Butter Cookies

These are soft peanut butter cookies. You can add more flour in order to be able to roll them and press them with a fork (for a more traditional looking peanut butter cookie). I like them soft and chewy more than I care about the fork-pressed look. :)

1 C butter, softened
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
1 C chunky peanut butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 C flour
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter and sugars until fluffy. Add vanilla extract and beat. Beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually beat in dry mixture, scraping down edges of bowl to incorporate throughout the dough. Use a cookie scoop (or spoon) to scoop dough onto an ungreased baking sheet (line with parchment if desired). Bake for 10-12 minutes.
