  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Cream sugars, butter or margarine, and peanut butter. Beat in egg, then stir in remaining ingredients.

Wonderful cookies... Made them twice!, Member mariongib

I'm glad I found this recipe. I even shared with a co-worker. Great taste, and the recipe yielded 2 pans of relatively large cookies. They have been a hit in our house, twice this week. I used margarine and butter. I can't tell the difference. Marion in Kentucky
