This and that: Peanut Butter Cookies.

Peanut Butter Cookies.

I hadn't made peanut butter cookies for a long, long time.
It is probably a good thing, because I forgot how addicting they are.

Do you like your cookies soft  or hard and crunchy?
I let mine bake longer, and also I let them sit on the cupboard overnight
 so today they were hard and crunchy...
Good coffee dipping cookies.
That is if I drank coffee anymore.. Dipping cookies in tea is just not the same.

Peanut Butter Cookies

adapted from a small town cookbook that I have had for years~ St. Theresa's Treats

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup peanut butter ~ I used my Canadian Kraft Peanut Butter.
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
extra sugar to roll cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix flours, baking soda and salt together and set aside.  In bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar and butter.  Mix well, add peanut butter and continue to mix. Mix in eggs.  Once all these ingredients are mixed add vanilla and then dry ingredients.  Once everything is mixed well, roll into balls.  Roll balls in sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet or use a baking mat on your cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.
  I baked mine for 14 minutes and they came out crunchy, 10 minutes would make them soft. Enjoy.  I bet you can't eat just one.

The next time I make them I am going to use more whole wheat flour and less white flour... I also  didn't put the fork marks in my cookies...
