"These cookies are the BEST peanut butter cookies I've ever eaten" said Dad when he first bit into them. As someone who isn't short on opinions, but will also be totally honest, I'm going to have to agree. These are absolutely amazing. Soft and chewy and addictive. The dough is also incredible so try not to eat it all before you stick it in the oven!

The MOST AMAZING Peanut Butter Cookies
Gotorecipes (on Instagram)
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
White chocolate chips (optional, but man they really knock these things out of the park)
Cream together the butter and peanut butter. Add sugars and beat until smooth, then beat in eggs one at a time, then vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and slowly add them to the mixture just until incorporated. Add white chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350º. Scoop dough (about 2 Tablespoons) onto Silpat or un-greased baking sheet. Make hatch marks by pressing a flour-covered fork down on the down twice - one way, then across the other way (optional- we didn't do this at the Crofts home). Bake for 10 minutes until barely starting to brown, puffed and beginning to crack. Allow to cool on the baking sheet.
