Author: Canadian Living

A Saturday baking day staple, these cookies were a favourite of Janice's dad.

  • Portion size 60 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with peanut butter; beat in granulated and brown sugars. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour with baking soda; stir into butter mixture until blended.

Roll by rounded 1 tbsp (15 mL) into balls. Place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on prepared pans. With fork, press to flatten to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until golden on bottoms and edges are darkened, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.)
