Katie's Peanut Butter Cookies

My granddaughter Katie who is 10 is visiting a few days and we made one of her favorite cookies today. Peanut Butter Chris Crosses. Here is what you need:

1/2 C. butter at room temperature
1/2 C. peanut butter
1/2 C. brown sugar packed
1/2 C. white sugar
1 egg beaten
1 1/4 C. flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and place silpat or parchment on cookie sheets.

Combine the butter, peanut butter, sugars, and egg and beat well and set aside. Combine in a separate bowl the flour, soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the fat and sugars and beat well.

Refrigerate the dough for about 30-40 minutes. Then form into teaspoon sized balls and cross with a sugar dipped fork.
Bake 10 minutes and remove from oven, cool 5 minutes and remove to rack to finish cooling. Yield 3 dozen cookies.
