Peanut Butter Cookies

Source: Pillsbury cookbook

This recipe was requested so here it is. I think this is my most requested recipe and is the most requested/baked in our home. We love them! They should turn out soft and chewy like chocolate chip cookies, not so much like the normal peanut butter cookie texture.

1/2 c sugar

1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 c margarine or butter, softened

1/2 c peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 1/4 c flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven 375.

Combine sugars and margarine. Beat until light and fluffy.

Add peanut butter, vanilla, and egg. Blend well.

Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

I add the small Reese's Pieces (the ones that look like M&M's.) I've tried out regular cups and Peanut Butter M&M's and found these are the very best! It really brings out the peanut flavor. Stir in Reese's Pieces. Shape into cookies and bake until just setting up. I take them out of the oven before they turn golden (they might have slight golden spots but not dark) and let them finish baking/setting up, on the sheet out of the oven.
