Great American Peanut Butter Cookies
ready in: 30-60 minutes
recipe id: 85936
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/3 cup sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Butterfinger candy bars, coarsely chopped
1/2 package (8 ounce size) toffee chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a mixer bowl, cream butter or margarine, peanut butter, brown sugar, and 1 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
Gradually beat in the dry ingredients just until combined.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls into remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar. Shape into balls. Place about 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with a fork dipped in the sugar.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are just set and are slightly firm to the touch. Do not over-bake. They will crisp up when cooled.
Cool for one minute on cookie sheets. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
