Peanut Butter Cookies

2 ½ cups all purpose flour (half whole wheat, half white)
½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup margarine (not the soft-tub kind)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp Vanilla
1 egg

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Cream margarine, peanut butter, and sugars; beat in vanilla and egg. Stir in flour mixture, blending well. Shape mixture into 3/4-inch balls; place on greased baking sheets. Flatten each cookie with the tines of a fork; dip fork in water periodically to keep it from sticking to the peanut butter cookie dough. Bake at 375° for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Note: I use the hard margarine instead of butter as I find they stay chewy and soft. My kids and hubby adore these cookies.
