Hi everyone! Today's recipe is "Peanut Butter Cookies", these are my husband's favorite cookies, hopefully you like these as much as he does, they are super easy to make, and very delicious, so delicious that you will find me eating the raw dough as I'm making these!  The dough can be frozen for up to 10 days! Have a wonderful day everyone!

Makes about 3 dozen cookies
Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 sticks of unsalted butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder together, set a side for a moment.

In an electric mixer blend the granulated sugar and brown sugar together for about 1 minute or until well combined. Add in the butter and continue to blend at medium
speed until you have a grainy paste. Reduce the speed and add the eggs one at a time
blend for a bout 30 second after each egg. Scrape down the sides, add in the vanilla extract, blend for about 1 minute at medium speed, then add in the peanut butter, blend on medium speed for about 2 minutes or until you get a fluffy creamy paste. Scrape down the side again, reduce the speed to the lowest, slowly add in the flour a little at a time.

Do not over blend, you just want to bring everything together without over-mixing.

Remove the bowl from the mixer and scrape down the sides, add in the peanut butter chips, and using a spatula fold the chips into the batter.

Line the baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon the dough onto the baking sheet, leave leave about 1 inch of distance between each spoon to prevent the cookies from sticking together.

Bake at 350ºF for about 18-22 minutes or slightly golden brown.

Enjoy!
