Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

2 eggs, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Beat butter in mixing bowl until light and fluffy.  Add both sugars and continue to beat until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla while still beating.

While beating butter/sugar mixture, in separate bowl, stir together remaining dry ingredients.   Add flour mixture to butter mixture in mixing bowl and beat just until flour mixture is incorporated.

Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.

When batter is cooled, shape into 1 1/2 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Dipping fork into sugar first, press a crisscross pattern into each cookie.  Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes.  Allow baked cookies to cool on pan for a couple of minutes before removing.

Have cold milk ready.
