Crisscrossed fork marks and all, these peanut butter cookies are just like Mom made, with the addition of yummy butterscotch morsels for extra flavor and a sweet crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt.

Step 2

Beat butter and peanut butter until smooth. Gradually add sugar, beating to blend. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and butterscotch morsels. Form into a large disk and wrap in plastic. Chill for 2 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 375°F; line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Use hands to form dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place balls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Using a fork, press balls flat, then press again to form a crisscross pattern. Bake cookies until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Cool on sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
