This traditional-style peanut butter cookie is an old-time favorite.
Peanut Butter Cookies - 125 Medium Cookies
1¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces and at room temperature
4 tablespoons shortening (preferably non-hydrogenated)
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
¾ cup peanut butter (creamy, but not natural)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 350°F. Put the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine; reserve. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, shortening and sugars. Using a Cuisinart® Hand or Stand Mixer fitted with the mixing beaters/paddle, mix until light and creamy. Mix in the peanut butter until combined. Mix in the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time, until completely combined. Add the reserved dry ingredients and mix on low, until just combined. Fit the Cuisinart® Electric Cookie Press with desired disc*, as instructed on page 2. Load the cookie dough to the MAX fill line. Press the cookie dough out onto an ungreased/unlined baking pan, about 1 inch apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, until just set. Cool cookies before removing from pan.
*Note: Due to the consistency of this cookie dough, we recommend using discs 3, 4, 5, 6 or 10.

Servings: Makes about 125 medium-size cookies
