Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies


Place oven rack just above oven center. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. In another bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into butter mixture until well-blended.


Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Gently flatten each ball with fork in a criss-cross pattern. Bake in the top half of 375°F oven until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cookies from sheets; cool on wire racks.
