"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave?" - Kathleen Kelly (You've Got Mail)

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. peanut butter (I used extra crunchy)
1 c. white sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 c. white all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugars and eggs. In a separate bowl sift together the remaining ingredients. Stir into the butter mixture until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. After chilling the dough, preheat the oven to 375. Place dough on cookie sheets by tablespoonfuls. Flatten with a fork (or in my case, I used a meat mallet, haha!) and bake in the preheat oven for 9-10 minutes. Do not over bake! Makes 4 dozen cookies.
