1 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup packed brown sugar 2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the creamy peanut butter to the creamed mixture and continue to beat until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Roll tablespoon-sized portions of dough into balls. Optionally, roll each ball in additional granulated sugar for a slightly crunchy exterior.
Place the cookie balls onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each cookie.
