As a kid, my mom always made peanut butter cookies and they were always very heavy and salty (yuck). These are the best I've ever had!


2 Cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 Cup packed dark brown sugar
1 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
1 Cup butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 Cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 300ºF. Mix dry ingredients (except sugars) and set aside. On medium speed, in large bowl, blend sugars; add butter, mix till grainy consistency. Add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla extract; beat till fluffy. On low speed, add flour mixture until barely mixed into butter mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoonsful, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Use a wet or flour coated fork to gently press a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie. Bake until the edges of the cookies are very lightly browned, approximately 18- 20 minutes. Remove to cool on a flat surface.
