Directions

Step 1

Place oven rack in centre of oven; preheat to 350ºF (180ºC).

Step 2

With pastry brush and a little shortening, lightly grease 2 rimless baking sheets; set aside.

Step 3

Place butter in large bowl. With electric mixer, beat at high speed until fluffy and light coloured. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar; beat until even fluffier. Beat in peanut butter.

Step 4

Break 1 of the eggs into small bowl and add to batter; beat until blended. Break second egg into small bowl; add to batter along with vanilla and beat until smooth.

Step 5

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; pour half over batter. With wooden spoon, mix until no streaks remain. Stir in remaining flour mixture until no streaks remain.

Step 6

Scoop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls (15 mL); roll into balls and place on prepared baking sheets, leaving 2-inch (5 cm) space between cookies. With fork dipped in flour, press cookies to make crisscross pattern and flattened to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness.

Step 7

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, for 10 to 12 minutes or until firm and golden around edges and underneath. Wearing oven mitts, remove baking sheet from oven; with lifter, lift cookies off baking sheet and set in single layer on rack to let cool completely.

Step 8

Repeat with remaining baking sheet of dough. Let first sheet cool completely before adding more dough so dough doesn’t melt.
