How to Make Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Refrigerate dough 1 hour.
  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making the classic crisscross pattern.
