Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Beat butter, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth; beat in eggs.

  2. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a separate bowl; stir into butter mixture until dough is just combined. Chill cookie dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets briefly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
