I creamed the butter and peanut butter together. Then I added 1/2 c flour and the rest of the ingredients to the bowl.
I prepared the sugar bowl and got out my cookie sheets while the dough was cooling. Okay, I got to watch the Wiggles and Thomas the train too :) Then my son gave me a few seconds to myself so I raced back into the kitchen to make the cookies. First I used my cookie scoop to make the cookies a uniform size. Then I rolled them in the sugar.
Then I put them on the cookie sheet with enough room for them to spread.
Then I smooshed them with a fork....
