Peanut Butter Cookies

Ok I am a chocolate lover but my husband loves caramel and peanut butter. Most of the time I make my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies but today lets make Peanut Butter Cookies!

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 Cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars and then beat in the eggs.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into atter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cros pattern. Bke in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes or unti cookies begin to brown. Do not overbake.

(Maybe you could dip one side in melted chocolate- ahhh the best of both worlds- peanut butter and chocolate! :)
