Lansing, Livonia, Detroit...GOP candidates have been all over Pure Michigan, trying to get the upper HAND!

1/4 tsp. each baking powder, baking soda, salt
1/2 cup butter or Butter-flavored Crisco
1/2 cup each brown sugar, white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg

In bowl of electric mixer beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add peanut butter, vanilla and egg; beat well.  Add flour mixture and beat until combined.  Stir in peanuts.

Use a 1 Tbsp. scoop to portion cookies on lightly sprayed cookie sheet.  Use a sugar-dipped fork to flatten in classic peanut butter criss-cross pattern.
