Peanut Butter Cookies recipe

These Peanut Butter Cookies are especially tasty by adding a cup of butterscotch chips or Hershey's Toffee bar crumbled up. I divided the dough and put half a cup of butterscotch chips in one half and half a cup of crumbled Hershey Toffee bar in the other half of the dough


• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 tsp. baking soda
• 1/4 tsp. salt
• 1 egg
• 1/2 tsp. vanilla
• 1-1/4 cups flour
• 1 cup Butterscotch chips or crumbled Hershey Toffee bar


In a large bowl beat peanut butter and butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour. Cover and refrigerate dough 1 hour .

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough in 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies by making crisscross marks with fork tines, dipping fork in sugar between flattening each cookie. Bake7 to 10 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks. Cool. Makes 3 dozen.
