Soft Peanut butter Cookies

After a long day of hiking and having girl time with a friend the last thing I was thinking about when I got home was baking. But when your kids ask to bake them some cookies, how could I say no to those cute little faces.I took these pictures with my iPhone.This is a quick recipe and the cookies are super soft.This is what you will need:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 and 1/2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer, combine butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla, continuing to mix. In a separate bowl stir together baking soda, salt, and flour. Slowing incorporate dry ingredients into stand mixer, continuing to mix. Shape into 1 and 1/2 inch balls and arrange on a lined baking sheet. Slightly flatten each ball of dough with a fork. Bake 8-9 minutes. Allow to cool.
