Oh the cookies peanut butter cookies that is

One yummy batch down 2 to go!

Well this turned out to be about 40 cookies but I made them a bit small so the kids don't est too much junk! They are just so yummy I had to share a picture.

So now that you have seen them I know you want to make them. I hope you love them! I have perfected this recipe over the past few years to just the way we like them (very peanut buttery) and this time I added Vermont chocolate candies you can add M&M's, kisses, or peanut butter cups if you like or leave them just the way they are. If you add the candies do it right after you pull them out of the oven so the stick.

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla one at a time. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into creamed mixture. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Press each ball once with fork tines.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned.
