Peanut Butter Cookies

This is one of the North American cookie classics, right up there with chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies. There is nothing fussy about this cookie – it is quick to make and yummy to eat.

Cream together:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter

Add to creamed mixture and beat:
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup peanut butter

Combine dry ingredients and add to wet:
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix until combined. Roll into balls. Using a fork dipped in sugar, crosshatch the top of the cookie, flattening it somewhat. Bake for 13-15 minutes at 350 degrees F.
