I've been trying different peanut butter cookie recipes and just haven't been able to find the right one until just the other day! I found it by just browsing online. These are so soft and delicious! They stay soft for days if you keep them in a plastic container. As you can see, I added chocolate chips to half of the batch for Michael since he refuses to eat cookies without lots of chocolate chips. Both were so delicious! Here's the recipe for anyone interested in trying them:
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
Combine margarine, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Blend together very well.
Add flour, baking soda and salt with mixer.
Chill dough 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Roll into balls by hand.
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).
We store them in a plastic storage containers, and they stay soft!
