i love peanut butter (i can eat it by the spoonful).  i also love cookies.  so i decided it was time to make a batch of these lovely peanut butter cookies!
> Ingredients:
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 & 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

> Directions:
- Beat together peanut butter and butter
- Add in white sugar and brown sugar
- Mix in the egg, milk, and vanilla extract
- Finally, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix well
- Roll balls of dough, lightly coat in white sugar, place on ungreased baking sheet (you can add a tic-tac-toe design on top by using a fork; but by doing so you will squash the dough down and the cookie will turn out slightly crunchier)
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 9 to 10 minutes
- Let cookies cool for 3 or 4 minutes before moving them

I used creamy peanut butter; but I know others prefer crunchy.  It's all up to you!  How do you make your peanut butter cookies?
