Cookies.Recipes's picture
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄2 Pound, softened (1 Cup)
  Crunchy peanut butter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Firmly packed brown sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Eggs 2
  All purpose flour 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Baking soda 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Chopped salted peanuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

In large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar until creamy; beat in eggs.
In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder; gradually add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly.
Stir in peanuts, if desired.
To shape each cookie, spoon dough into a 1/2-cup measure, level off, and turn out onto a greased baking sheet.
Space cookies at least 6 inches apart and 2 1/2 inches from edge of baking sheet.
Lightly grease the bottom of a pie pan, dip in granulated sugar, and use to flatten each cookie into a 5 1/2-inch circle.
If necessary, press cookies lightly with your fingers to give them an even thickness.
If desired, make a crisscross pattern on top of cookies by lightly scoring with fork tines or pressing with a wire cake rack.
Bake in a 350° oven for about 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Let cool on baking sheets for about 5 minutes; then transfer to racks and let cool completely.
Store airtight.
