PB Cookie Recipe!!

I've had a few requests for this recipe, so HERE IT IS!!!

NOTE: The key to fabulous cookies is how you mix them, and how you bake them. Just in case you wanted to know.

Soft, Chewy, Peanut Butter Cookies

2 1/3 C. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 C. packed brown sugar
1 1/4 C. white sugar
1 C. butter
3 eggs
1 2/3 C. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees (yeah, you read that right - 300).
2. Cream butter, brown and white sugars. Whip it on high for a couple minutes - you want this super creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well in between.
3. Add peanut butter, and mix well.
4. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder, and extracts.
5. Add flour, mix well.
6. Roll into balls, and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet (another awesome baking secret!!).
7. Bake at 300 degrees for 17 minutes.
8. When you pull them out, and while still very hot, push your favorite chocolate into the center (I used Dove).
9. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack (another baking secret!! The cookies actually continue to bake on the sheet, out of the oven, for those few minutes).

Let me know how they turn out!!
