Tried a new recipe. My mom use to make peanut butter cookies, but I didn't have her recipe. Found one in a book that I checked out from the library that I thought sounded good.

I made the cookies dairy-free so Sophia can have them (she has a dairy allergy).  They are moist and flavorful cookies. 

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter (I used dairy free)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
granulated sugar

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and peanut butter together. Add the sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat until combined. Add egg and vanilla. Add the flour with the mixer (as much as you can) and then add remaining flour by hand. If necessary, cover and chill dough in refrigerator until easy to handle.

Shape dough into 2-inch balls. Roll in sugar to coat. Place 12 balls on a cookie sheet. Flatten by making risscross marks with the tines of a fork.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Makes 36 cookies.
