Recipe: Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies

I realized that I haven't shared a recipe on here in quite a while so I figured that I would fix that today. If you know me then you know that I absolutely love peanut butter, so as you can imagine peanut butter cookies are a favorite of mine!  While I do like Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies, I actually prefer good Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies, and I have a great recipe for them that I am going to share today.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups flour (or sub with this to make gluten free)
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Extra sugar for dusting

-In a bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt, mix well. 
-In a different bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer until blended and creamy.
-Gradually add both sugars to the butter mixture, beat well.
-Add eggs to the mixture, beat well.
-Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beat well.
-Stir in vanilla.
-Cover the dough and put in fridge for 3 hours.
-After chilling, shape dough into small balls and place on cookie sheet.
-Using a fork, flatten cookies in a crisscross design.
-Sprinkle with sugar (I used red sugar sprinkles to make them festive!).
-Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes.
-Transfer from cookie sheet onto wire cooling rack.
-Cool and enjoy!
Whenever I make these they bring me back to my childhood, as they've been a favorite since then.  If you or anyone you know loves peanut butter you have to make these, trust me on that!

What is your favorite kind of cookie?  Has it changed over the years or has it always been the same like me?
