  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until smooth Add the sugar and vanilla extract.

  • Beat until mixed well Now incorporate peanut butter

  • Scrape down the sides and bottom of your bowl

  • Add the egg and beat to combine

  • In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt

  • Add the flour mixture to peanut butter mixture and beat together

  • This should make the perfect batter

  • If the batter is too soft to form into balls, place in the refrigerator for about a 30 minutes 

  • Roll the batter into 2 inch balls Flatten the cookies using a bottom of a glass

  • Then, using a fork, make crisscross patterns Sprinkle some granulated white sugar on top

  • Refrigerate for 15 mins (optional)
