My mother used to make these cookies when my brothers and I were growing up. They are easy and are very delicious. Hope someone out there likes them as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup margarine

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two cookie sheets.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Use a wet fork dipped in sugar to make the crisscrosses on the top.

  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Grab a glass of milk and enjoy!
