20090111 Peanut Butter Cookies

(SOURCE: Simply Recipes - Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe) is one of my favorite websites. The pictures there are so pretty, and most of their recipes are very simple and easy to follow. This had been my husband's favorite cookie until he tasted the giant ginger cookies last week. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

100g sugar
110gp brown sugar
110g butter
110g peanut butter
1 egg
170g flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1. Cream the butter for 2 minutes. Add the sugars, cream for 2 more minutes. Mix in the peanut butter and egg. Mix together the dry ingredients. Stir into the sugar butter mixture.
2. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
3. Preheat oven to 190 degree C. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork. Bake until light brown, about 15 minutes for chewier cookies. Cool on baking sheets for a minute, then transfer to rack to cool completely.
