Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone mat.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together for 3 minutes or until smooth & creamy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and beat for another minute.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  5. Slowly combine dry mixture with butter-sugar mixture, beating until well mixed.
  6. Make cinnamon sugar by combining sugar and cinnamon on a flat plate.
  7. Scoop cookie dough out with small cookie scoop or teaspoon. Shape into balls then roll in cinnamon sugar. Place on prepared cookie sheets.
  8. Press each cookie down in a criss-cross pattern with tines of a fork.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  10. Remove immediately from cookie sheets and allow cookies to cool on wire rack. You can also sprinkle a little more cinnamon sugar on each cookie as soon as it comes out of oven. Just for that little extra flavor.
