Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe comes from the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book. My boys love them!

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar or 1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a medium bowl, beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer. Add 1/2 cup flour, the sugars, egg, baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla. Beat until thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. If necessary, cover and chill dough until easy to handle.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. If desired, roll in additional sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten by crisscrosing with the tines of a fork.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8-11 minutes. Makes about 36.
