Peanut Butter Cookies

With everything that is happening in the world right now, I thought I would post some of the recipes that bring me comfort. There will be a couple of recipes being posted this weekend for a couple of reasons, 1) I can’t leave my house and 2) I think we all need a little comfort food right now.
I made some peanut butter cookies and they are soft and chewy and feel like a warm hug if hugging was allowed right now. These are Kevin’s favourite cookies so I try to make them as often as I can but I have to limit them otherwise he will eat them all in a day.


I hope everyone is staying inside, safe and healthy!

In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture. Put the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and put them on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cookies begins to brown.
