Peanut Butter Cookies

Jess over at Life's Simple Measures had a posting about chocolate dipped peanut butter cookie sandwiches last week.  That got me to wanting some Peanut Butter cookies.  Since my son was out of school today, I decided that this was something we could do together (in addition to checking on the cows and picking up pecans).  We decided to stop at the peanut butter cookie stage and they are delicious.  Here is the recipe:

Peanut Butter Cookies (modified from Gooseberry Patch's 101 Cupcake, Cookie & Brownie Recipes)

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I grind hard white wheat)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Mix first four ingredients until thoroughly combined.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 10 minutes.

Yes, there is a cookie missing.  I had to "taste test" one to make sure they were good. (They were!) ;)
