Peanut Butter Cookie

As I was "Pinning" one day I came across a peanut butter cookie recipe that claimed it was soft and chewy, not crunchy. It was on createdby-diane.com found here. She definitely had my attention and I knew I had to try them. I knew that I was going to try them today, so all through my class at the gym this morning it is all I could think about. If that instructer only knew that while she was killing me with lunges I was thinking of cookies. You know what? I was so distracted with cookie thinking that the class flew by. I think I'm on to something here. I definitely work out so I can eat more cookies. It's justified, don't judge. 
These cookies did not dissapoint. So yummy! 
I decided to make it a little fun for spring with a flower cookie cutter. 

This is just the beginning of the peanut butter cookie recipe. Tune in later this week for another peanut butter goodie.

First the recipe.....
You will need:

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups flour

Beat butter, peanut butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs one an a time, then vanilla. Mix baking powder with flour, then add flour a cup at a time.

Pretty simple right!

Roll the dough into little balls

Press down a bit then press the flower cutter on top, but not all the way through. Unless you want it flower shaped of course.

You can leave it like this or press the cutter down again

Sprinkle on some sugar... Bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes

Simple and delicious!

Baking from my heart to your kitchen,
