Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Don't these look good?  Well, mine look like this but this is a generic picture since I forgot to take one!  I haven't posted recipes lately because every one I tried lately has been bad!! YUCK!! So, here's a "classic" for you!

1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs.  In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir into batter.  Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets.  Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.  Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.  Do not over bake.

This recipe make a TON of cookies!!  Also, I did not refrigerate mine for an hour (I actually didn't even know the recipe said that until I typed this up!) 

Enjoy :-)

Day 9 - A Picture of Your Friends

To think, this is the hardest one so far!  It isn't that I don't have friends but rather, that I don't have pictures!  So lets see what I can do :-)

Well, my best friend is this wonderful man - yes, my husband! :
Isn't this a cute picture?  It is from our recent visit to the Cider Mill.
 Another friend of mine is Aimee and yes, I think this is the only picture I have of her.  And too think, I take well over 2000 pictures a year!!
I don't have any current pictures of other friends but I do have them, friends that is! :-)  Several that I've had since high school and one, Kelly, who I have known since elementary school.  She used to come to my house to catch the bus!  I guess I need to work on getting some more pictures of my friends!
