Peanut Butter Cookies

I originally found this recipe while looking for a cookie that had a piece of Snickers bar in the middle.  I found I was pretty underwhelmed by the candy being in the middle.  However, the peanut butter cookie part was possibly the best PB cookie recipe I'd ever had.  So here is the recipe minus the disappointing snickers bar in the middle.

2 large eggs
1 c. sugar
1 c. packed light brown sugar
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Granulated sugar

1.  In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, peanut butter, vanilla and eggs.  Beat well.  Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mix until just combined.

2.  Shape dough into 1" balls, rolls in granulated sugar.  Place 4" apart on ungreased baking sheet, use the tines of a fork to flatten out the balls and make the traditional peanut butter cookie pattern. 

3.  Bake at 375 for 11-13 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a wire rack.  Store in a tightly covered container to keep them moist.
