In my humble opinion this is the best cookie recipe ever.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teas baking soda
1/2 teas baking powder
1/2 teas vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups flour
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 min.
(My oven runs cool so I bake mine at 365)
Be sure not to overcook them. They should be puffy when you take them from the oven but as they cook they flatten a bit.
This is the only cookie recipe I use. I alter it to suit the type of cookie that I want to make. Today I replaced the brown sugar with white sugar and rolled the dough in cinnamon and sugar to make snickerdoodles.
These cookies are moist and chewy - Never dry and crunchy.
My mother made terrible cookies. They were always crunchy and often burnt on the bottom. She thought she was being efficient by cooking 4 trays of cookies at once but in order to put the 4 racks in the oven she had to place one rack all the way on the bottom. That tray of cookies ended up burnt to a crisp - ALWAYS. You would think that she would have noticed this problem and changed her ways but no.
I remember my sisters and I learning to place burnt peanut butter cookies under a little water and scraping the burnt bottoms off to make them more palatable. Wet soggy peanut butter cookies -
